Although you can file for bankruptcy on your own, consulting a bankruptcy attorney is a beneficial first step for the vast majority of individuals.
Should you choose to represent yourself, you will be expected to understand and abide by bankruptcy law - which can prove very complex if you do not have any legal background. Often, filing bankruptcy involves much more than simply filing. You may be required to negotiate repayment terms, interact with creditors, or defend yourself against challenges that are brought to court - and creditors will bring their attorneys.
