I Live in Arizona and Would Like to File Bankruptcy Myself. – Jodi

“Dear Lewis,

I foreclosed on my Condo. Paid $255k, and it auctioned off for 87k. Sad. I then lost my job which paid 68k per year. I’ve used up all my savings, all my 401k monies, have 3 months left on unemployment before I will have NO income to speak of except Food Stamps @ $200 per month. I currently have a fulltime job in exchange for housing taking care of this guys mansion. I can’t even pay the utilities I use. Sad, but he is great and isn’t complaining yet. I have 3 people threatening me, all in which have been sent to creditor’s who are badgering me for payment that I can’t give. $600 for At&t, $35 for COX, and the HOA from the Condo committee has a judgement to garnish my wages if and when I DO obtain employment.

I would like to file for bankruptcy without spending any money doing it. I am 53 years old, always and forever had over an 800 credit rating until my Mortgage meltdown occurred. I am capable of filing and filling out bankruptcy paperwork myself. Where can I go to get the paperwork I need that will stand up in an Arizona Court?

Jodi”

Dear Jodi,

Go to the Arizona Bankruptcy Court website and get the papers.

Though I strongly urge you to use an attorney.

Good luck!
