Q: in Indianapolis Indiana, recently unemployed, how do find a Pro Bono Lawyer? Trying file chapter 7 over 30,000 in debt
Medical and Credit Card bills pilling up. I was recently in hospital last month for diabetes and high blood pressure. Do not want the stress of creditors calling me, sueing me and wage garnishment when I return to work. Trying file Chapter 7 before returning to work. Do not want have file for chapter 7 and cannot wait 2 to 3 weeks to wait for Pro Prono lawyer to take my case.
A: Doing your own Chapter 7 is roughly equivalent of doing your own appendectomy.
Have you talk to a Bankruptcy lawyer. There are now methods to pay for the 7 after filing, but what's the rush? Wait until ALL THE MEDICAL BILLS ARRIVE. Providers are notorious for taking their time bill the really big ones.
