BPP vs. Attorney for Bankruptcy


What is a BPP?

A "Bankruptcy Petition Preparer" (BPP) is a non-Attorney that offers to assist debtors with completing their bankruptcy petitions. According to Bankruptcy Courts the nation over, a BPP can do nothing more than act as a typist. BPP's are barred from giving legal advice, and are not required to have any type of certification or oversight whatsoever. BPP's are not accountable to anyone for the entries they make on your behalf.


Are there benefits to using an Attorney instead of a BPP?

Attorneys must be licensed to practice law in whichever State they practice, and the respective Federal District Court as well. Unlike BPP's, Attorneys are regulated by the State Bar Association, and are held accountable for their actions on your behalf.
