State bankruptcy self-help websites


My plan was to compile a collection of self-help bankruptcy sites from each state.  I realized that I would never have time to do all of the states at one time, which would mean I’d never get the thing done.  So, I’m going to do five states at a time and post them here.  When I’m finished, I’ll polish it up and create a page for it.

Keep in mind that bankruptcy is a federal matter so you don’t have to limit yourself to sites specific to your own state to get information.  You might find very helpful explanatory information on a site intended for another state.  However, if there is a site that provides forms for your state, you should probably use those unless you’re prepared to adjust them for your state.

If I miss any good sites, please let me know.  Meanwhile, here are the first five.

    I am trying to defend myself pro se in a bankruptcy matter. I have filed an adversary complaint – debtor’s attorney has filed an answer and a motion to dismiss. I need help as I am unable to pay for an atty. I have a very good chance to win this matter and have our claim non-dischargable, but I need help. Thanks.

    Terry, these links are really helpful. I know you said they do not have to be state specific for general information on bankruptcy but I was wondering if they do for eligibility purposes.
