Legal Advice

Only attorneys (not petition preparers, the Clerk's Office, judges, or chambers staff) can give legal advice. Due to the complexity of filings and the long-term financial and legal consequences of filing bankruptcy, individuals are encouraged to consult with a competent attorney.

What constitutes legal advice?

• Explaining the meaning of a particular statutory provision or rule
• Giving an interpretation of case law
• Explaining the result of taking or not taking an action in a case
• Helping you complete forms, or advising you regarding what is legally required when a form elicits information from you
• Telling you whether jurisdiction is proper in a case
• Telling you whether a complaint properly presents a claim
• Providing advice on the best procedure to accomplish a particular goal
• Applying a rule or statute
• Explaining who should receive proper notice or service
