While there is no law against a person filing a Chapter
13 bankruptcy without an attorney ("pro se"), it is in the debtor's best
interest to obtain the services of a bankruptcy attorney when filing a
case. Most of the fees required by an attorney for filing a Chapter
13 bankruptcy are usually paid through the plan (over 3-5 years, the usual
length of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy) and the monthly payments (and the total
to be paid over the period of the plan) are not affected by the presence
or absence of attorney fees (i.e. you'll usually end up paying the same
amount of money into your Chapter 13 whether you have to pay attorney fees
or not but you'll save yourself A LOT of trouble if you get a lawyer).
The Trustee's office does not report anything to or has any contact
with credit reporting agencies. Your bankruptcy may appear on your
credit reports for years after it has been discharged. It is vitally
important to keep and save ALL your documents, especially the discharge
order and the final report from our office.
