Free Bankruptcy has Drawbacks

If You Need to File Bankruptcy

Free bankruptcy has drawbacks. Legal Aid does what it can to help people. But don’t expect to get a free lawyer. It rarely happens. Legal aid is too overwhelmed to do that. Instead, they provide group classes. The class explains how the bankruptcy forms are supposed to be filled out. They provide general information about bankruptcy. They offer encouragement. But they rarely provide you with a lawyer.

This is why a free bankruptcy has drawbacks.

Free Bankruptcy has DrawbacksFor most people, a free bankruptcy will mean you are completely on your own without a lawyer to handle your case. But that is dangerous. You may lose important legal rights without a bankruptcy lawyer. SEE WHAT THE BANKRUPTCY SUCCESS RATE IS FOR CASES FILED WITHOUT A LAWYER. A very high percentage of pro se bankruptcy filers drop out. It is a shame, because they file the case, pay the filing fee, but just can’t get the job finished.
