International Bankruptcy: Bankruptcy in Practice

This research guide provides a starting point for International Bankruptcy Research in the U. S. Research and development by Azam Zarechahoki, LLM '17

Filing Bankruptcy

Individuals can file bankruptcy without an attorney, which is called filing pro se. However, seeking the advice of a qualified attorney is strongly recommended because bankruptcy has long-term financial and legal outcomes. Filing personal bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 takes careful preparation and understanding of legal issues. Misunderstandings of the law or making mistakes in the process can affect your rights. Court employees and bankruptcy judges are prohibited by law from offering legal advice.
