CPS can assist individuals representing themselves pro se, in bankruptcy court. We prepare all of the necessary documentation needed for clients who are filing their
own Chapter 7 or 13 Bankruptcy.  Any pro se litigant should seek the advice of a qualified attorney if they need specific answers to questions regarding their own
particular situation. Federal law allows non-attorney bankruptcy petition preparers to enter information onto bankruptcy forms for clients, but are prohibited from
providing legal advice or assisting clients in bankruptcy court.

If you file a bankruptcy petition, pro se, you're well aware that you are representing yourself, what your debts, assets and cash on hand are, not operating a business
nor own any real property, and are choosing to file bankruptcy voluntarily due to overwhelming medical, credit cards, and other debts.

As a Bankruptcy Petition Preparer, we must follow all of the federal bankruptcy rules. We cannot sign documents on your behalf nor receive payment for court fees as
these must be paid by the client directly to the court when filing their case.

CPS STRONGLY ENCOURAGES each bankruptcy client to double and triple check your completed bankruptcy petition and supporting documents BEFORE you file your
bankruptcy case.   

CPS does not assume any responsibility for typographical errors, after you have filed your bankruptcy petition with the bankruptcy court. Each client must familiarize
themselves with their own bankruptcy documents, terms, state and federal exemptions, as well as rights as a debtor.

CPS, owner or staff, are considered to be "bankruptcy petition preparer" (BPP) and a BPP CAN NOT choose or explain how your bankruptcy filing will affect your
financial income, or which exemptions to use or avoid, under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code §110.

A BPP is a non-attorney, and can not provide legal advice nor receive any compensation for providing legal advice, nor accept filing fees for or on behalf of any
client/debtor, as it is against the law.  A BPP can not file your bankruptcy petition and /or supporting documentation for you or on your behalf.
