What is the name of your state? CA

How difficult is it to file chapter 7? Do I need to seek a lawyer?


Senior Member
Real hard. The bk courts in Co. released some figures last month that said 80% of pro se filers had there cases dismissed since bk reform went into affect.


Senior Member
Wow, 80% :eek: :eek:

There are far too many things that can trip you up under the new BK law. It's really best now to have a lawyer if you can find a way to do it.

do most bk's cost 2000 dolars, we were going to file before the change but the lawyer wanted 2000 up front, how do they think that makes sense
