Can I represent myself in a bankruptcy case?

Our Professional Answer:

Generally, you can represent yourself in a bankruptcy case. But let me warn you, bankruptcy is a very convoluted set of rules and laws. The reason people file bankruptcy is because they’ve been unable to keep up with their finances or they’ve been disorganized in the way they’ve treated their finances.Hiring an attorney will insure that you go into bankruptcy and you receive the goal of the filing, which is the discharge of debt. I’m not going to tell you that you can’t represent yourself, I am going to tell you that it is a challenge and you should educate yourself thoroughly before ever undertaking to represent yourself in any bankruptcy case.
