Why do I need an Attorney to File Bankruptcy in Oklahoma?

Can I File for Bankruptcy without an attorney? The short answer is yes, of course. However, the more important answer is why would you want to file without an attorney? Filing for bankruptcy in Oklahoma by yourself is a recipe for disaster. Do you know the Oklahoma median income for your county of residence? Do you know how to apply the means test to your income? Do you know what mistakes to avoid when filing for bankruptcy? Do you have a CM/ECF account with log-in credentials for filing in federal bankruptcy court?

Filing for bankruptcy can be a difficult and stressful process. It is critically important to understand the bankruptcy process can be complicated and has many traps for the unwary. If you represent yourself, the bankruptcy trustee and the bankruptcy court will presume you know the law and are familiar with the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure. Why add undue stress to an already difficult situation? Given the complexities of filing for bankruptcy, it is best to work with a Tulsa bankruptcy attorney who can help you navigate the process and avoid common mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars.
