The pitfalls of bankruptcy petition preparers

Bankruptcy petition preparers are beginning to crop up again and target the poor or those who believe they can get a deal by using a petition preparer rather than a qualified bankruptcy attorney. In the Eastern District of Wisconsin, one bankruptcy judge fined a petition preparer and ordered him to refund fees stating he caused clients “more trouble” by the work he performed. The judge also referred the case to the US District Court. Petition preparers often have little to no experience and can make matters worse for debtors.
