Filing bankruptcy on your own can be extremely difficult. Should you choose to represent yourself in a bankruptcy the likelihood of success is extremely low. This is because when you represent yourself you are held to the same standard as a Houston bankruptcy attorney that files on your behalf.
You must be familiar with the legal and procedural requirements of the bankruptcy court when making your filings. Neither the bankruptcy trustee, who is appointed by the court to monitor and manage your plan payments, nor the court is allowed to provide you with legal advice. It is your responsibility to ensure that all of the schedules are filed in a timely manner, that a confirmable plan or reorganization is filed with the court if required, that any necessary payments under the plan are made in full and on time, and issues that may arise during your case are corrected properly and in a timely fashion. However, if you are unsuccessful in filing bankruptcy on your own, it has the potential to limit your ability to file again in the future.
