I am preparing a Bankruptcy file for a friend who can't afford a lawyer. The BK web site is good but I really need to know if her mother's name is on the house ; will her filing effect her mother's credit ?

If you do not have a license to practice law, you are committing a crime by helping your friend prepare her bankruptcy filing. In Illinois the crime is the unauthorized practice of law and it is a felony.
I am a primarily a bankruptcy lawyer. You are asking for a lot of trouble by doing what you are doing. If your friend can't afford a lawyer, you should contact Legal Aid. Good Luck!
