Hi and thank you for your question.
Generally, it is always recommended to have an attorney file this for you.
You can file pro-se, your local bankruptcy court may offer some assistance, many have a help desk.
You need to file the required schedules and forms with the court.
you need to complete a credit counseling course beforehand.

Here is a link to the bankruptcy court, select your appropriate district.
For the counseling,
they have a list of the authorized providers for the course.
