Electronic Self-Representation (eSR) Bankruptcy Petition Preparation System for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13
THIS ONLINE TOOL IS FOR SELF-REPRESENTED DEBTORS ONLY
Bankruptcy has serious long-term financial and legal consequences and hiring a competent attorney is strongly recommended. Individuals filing for bankruptcy without an attorney are still responsible for knowing and following all the legal requirements. The Bankruptcy Court is not permitted to provide legal advice.
If you would like to meet with an attorney for a FREE 30-minute consultation prior to filing bankruptcy, you may contact the Pro Se Assistance Program sponsored by the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis. Click Here to schedule an appointment.
Note: Employees of the Clerk's Office are NOT attorneys and are therefore restricted from offering ANY legal advice.
