Many people choose to file for Bankruptcy “Pro se”, that is, without a lawyer. A “Bankruptcy Petition Preparer” is a non-attorney who assists people in preparing their Bankruptcy documents by providing commercially available general resources and typing all paperwork in accordance to the court’s standards and guidelines. Because “Bankruptcy Petition Preparers” are not lawyers they cannot provide any legal advice. By law, “Bankruptcy Petition Preparers” are considered to be “debt relief agencies” and help people file for relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

The most common personal filing for Bankruptcy is done under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Bankruptcy laws differ state to state, however, every state has laws to protect certain property, such as clothing, household items, money in qualified retirement plans, your car and your house (up to a certain value).
The final order or discharge in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy releases the debtor from any personal liability for certain types of debt. This includes, but is not limited to, credit card payments, medical bills and personal loans. Once the bankruptcy has been discharged, the debtor is not legally responsible to pay back any outstanding balances and those debts are eliminated. This is a legal order prohibiting creditors from taking any action in collecting discharged debts from the debtor, including legal action and communication.
