41.   Can Debtors Afford Bankruptcy? Finding Low-Cost, Cheap Bankruptcy by Benji O. Anosike
    It seems there is today in these current hard national economic times, palpably one ominous additional burden for the average heavily indebted American consumer who, perhaps, sees his or her only recourse for some relief from his crushing debt as lying in filing bankruptcy: the cost for bankruptcy, and finding cheap, low-cost bankruptcy that debtor can afford. This often mean, in essence, finding pro se or non lawyer bankruptcy alternative. The bankruptcy lawyers' current fees for bankruptcy are so high they've been said by one expert to have "priced the average debtor out of bankruptcy." In deed, according to some bankruptcy experts, many of whom are themselves bankruptcy lawyers, though a new record of some 1.1 million debtors filed for bankruptcy in 2008, yet another set of debtors of equal size qualify for and seek to file for bankruptcy, but can't do so merely for the fact that they cannot afford to pay the lawyers fees. Consequently, affordability of bankruptcy cost constitutes the most critical impediments today to being able to file for bankruptcy for the average debtor seeking to file bankruptcy.
