Filing bankruptcy via an online petition preparation service should always be avoided.

I'm thinking about filing for bankruptcy and one of my friends asked me to do it online. Should I do it? Is online bankruptcy filing a scam? I'm unemployed since long and behind on my mortgage and other payments..

Filing bankruptcy via an online petition preparation service should always be avoided. Often, consumers make use of these convenient and cheap services only to learn later that they didn't prepare the forms properly or neglected to enlist an asset that could cause massive problems in a bankruptcy filing. If we compare the costs of hiring a bankruptcy attorney to the potential problems that could arise if you file via online forms, you would find the costs associated with hiring a bankruptcy attorney are minimal.

Moreover, a bankruptcy attorney can also help you by suggesting the best bankruptcy filing for your case so that you can protect your tangible and intangible assets to some extent.
