There is no requirement that you hire an attorney to represent you when you file bankruptcy. However, there are so many pitfalls that can come up if you file bankruptcy on your own, that I strongly recommend that you hire an attorney to represent you. As a matter of fact, we used to have a bankruptcy judge here in Tampa that would tell people that came before him without attorneys that filing bankruptcy without an attorney is like trying to perform brain surgery on yourself.
