“Dear Steve,

I am going to file bankruptcy and have stopped paying all my credit cards. I still have no money to pay an attorney.

Should I skip a couple of mortgage payments in order to pay an attorney?

Dear Justin,

I don’t think that’s going to help you much. If you want to keep the house in bankruptcy you’ll need to either be current with the house or be able to make the regular mortgage payment plus a bit of the amount you are behind if you enter a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

If you can’t afford to keep the house, well then, that’s a different matter.
