If you go to a Bankruptcy Lawyer for a free consultation or a Bankruptcy Petition Preparer, make sure they give you this:

The Attorney should provide you with Important information about Bankruptcy Assistance Services from an Attorney or Bankruptcy Petition Preparer.
The law requires an Attorney or Bankruptcy Preparer to give you a written contract specifying what the attorney or Bankruptcy Petition Preparer will do for you and how much it will cost.
