A: YEs, it is possible to file on your own, but free is another story. You will have to file an Application with the Court to waive the filing fee or pay same in installments. I seriously recommend you call Atlantic County Legal Services (if they have such a thing) and see if they can help you. I would never recommend filing without Counsel

A: You can file bankruptcy on your own but I recommend speaking with an attorney. You still will need to pay the filing fee unless you request a waiver
