Re: legal help
If you do it with an online company instead of a local lawyer, you will save money on the filing. But that is not the whole story because:
1) The rules are different in every court. An online company is not going to know what the rules require in your local court and might get your filng wrong because of that.
2) As part of every bankruptcy case, you have to go to at least one court-related meeting (the "341 hearing") and possibly other court hearings. An online company won't be able to show up to go to those hearings with you or help you through them.
It costs more to hire an actual attorney to handle your bankruptcy case, but it is almost always worth it.
