Unless you are an expert in bankruptcy law, it would be exceedingly unwise and risky to represent yourself in a bankruptcy. Chapter 7 debtors attempting to represent themselves "pro se" or using bankruptcy preparers (who are not permitted or qualified to give legal advice) often run into serious difficulties, sometimes losing their home, vehicles, tax refunds or other property when this property could have been protected or having their bankruptcies needlessly dismissed. Under the additional requirements of Chapter 13 bankruptcy the likelihood of a satisfactory outcome for a pro se filing is even more remote. It's extremely important that you have a local bankruptcy lawyer with the experience and skills to get the best results possible for you.
