Legal Advice

A bankruptcy case is a legal proceeding affecting the rights of both debtors and creditors. Title 28 U.S.C. Sec 955 PROHIBITS any member of the Clerk's Office staff from giving any advice which may be considered legal in nature. Canon 2(f) and Canon 3 of the Judiciary's Code of Conduct also PROHIBITS this office from providing legal advice and further instructs the staff to remain impartial. Because bankruptcy is frequently complicated, it is strongly suggested that lay people obtain the services of an attorney.
