Individuals may file a bankruptcy case without representation; however, it is incredibly difficult to do it successfully. The procedures and strategies involved with filing for bankruptcy are complex. A mistake in estimating your equity/assets, or applying incorrect exemptions could cost you your home and other property. In addition, if you fail to meet certain legal requirements, your case may be dismissed and you may lose the right to file another case.
Bankruptcy has long-lasting legal and financial consequences. Hiring an attorney to represent you through this difficult process is a wise investment.
