If you are staying up nights, trying to figure out how to stop creditor phone calls and harassment...and seek a fresh start in your financial life, this book is like a breath of fresh air. Both parties in Congress have been paid off by lobbies for big banking and credit card companies to support HR 333, the egregiously misnamed "Bankruptcy Reform and Consumer Protection Act..." The only consumers protected are politicians, who have accepted millions of dollars in contributions to support this destruction of your ability to obtain a 'Fresh Start' chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge. You can see your representative's money haul on this terrible bill at www.opensecrets.org . NOLO.COM, publisher, has been harassed by the State of Texas and their lawyers, for costing them their fees to file these relatively simple forms. Don't expect this to be really easy, but if you have the time available to save legal fees, this is a great book with all necessary forms for most courts. It is certainly helpful to have a computer to print forms, available from NOLO.COM, or your local bankruptcy court site. I did it, with only one visit to the courthouse. It is a lifesaver. Hold your head up high, kiss your bills goodbye, and don't let it get out of hand again! Good luck!

If you have reached a point that you need to file bankruptcy, the last thing you want to do is incur unnecessary attorney fees to get the filing completed. On the other hand, if you try to go it alone and you make a mistake, that mistake could cost you far more than what an attorney would have charged. Your best course is to find an attorney that specializes in filing simple Chapter 7 petitions; they typically charge a flat fee of just a few hundred dollars. But if even that amount is too much, this guide will show you how to prepare and file your own documents. Be forewarned though -- as good as this guide is, every Bankruptcy Court has its own local rules, so expect two or three trips to the courthouse to finally get the job done.

Whether you are just contemplating the process, using an attorney, or considering this step on your own... the book will be useful and beneficial. I am working with an attorney and the book helped me with the paperwork and generated a number of questions to ask that proved beneficial in the process. The book provides sufficient detail to "go this on your own" too...I just wanted the benefit of the insight to help me go through the process...really crummy. I'd recommend the book...but suggest it is best to avoid the process unless you have no other choice...as we had none...it has given us a new beginning.
