A: Santa Ana and other bankruptcy court locations have free bankruptcy clinics. You can look into attending one of those for some free legal help and possible representation. Their open sessions are usually posted online.

A: I suggest you contact a bankruptcy attorney - some of us offer a half hour no charge consultation - which might clarify what exactly is occurring with your claim. Do you mean that your claim was objected to by the Debtor? If litigation is required, it might be difficult to engage an attorney at no charge for that. Checking with legal aid or public law centers worth looking into also.

A: As other answers state you should check with your local groups. You might agree to pay an attorney for a short consultation which might clarify your options. Some will give you a free consultation.
