How do you file bankruptcy?

My wife and I have chosen to file bankruptcy and we do not know where to begin.

As someone who works for a bank, I don't like bankruptcy. It is very damaging to banks. However, to start you need to contact a bankruptcy attorney. They will go over the procedures. They will go over all of you bills and tell you what can and can't be included. As advice, this is VERY damaging to your credit.

The first step to filing bankruptcy is to retain a good bankruptcy attourney. The attourney will guide you through the legal requirements and ensure bankruptcy is the right decision.

To file bankruptcy it is best to first speak with an attorney that specializes in bankruptcy. You can set up an appointment and get a free initial consultation before you decide.

I think the first place to start is your local state or city agency, they can direct you to a low cost organization they can help. Eventually you will need to seek the counsel of a lawyer but try step 1 first (good Luck)
