There are many online tax websites (e.g., TurboTax), but are there similar websites for helping one fill out the paperwork for bankruptcy?

    Bankruptcy is unrelated to tax filings. Taxes are filed to the IRS, bankruptcy to a court. Your local court might or might not have online filing pages, it depends on where you live. – Aganju Jan 19 at 22:44

    Even if your local bankruptcy court permits online filings, it's highly recommended that you get a bankruptcy lawyer to navigate the process. It's very easy to muck it all up, and the consequences of doing so are far greater than a mistake on your taxes tends to result in. – ceejayoz Jan 20 at 0:03

No there probably aren’t websites like that. Because of the serious long term financial and legal consequences of bankruptcy and the great difficulty of succeeding with filing bankruptcy by yourself(paraphrasing from the instructions), you should hire an attorney to help. It is highly unlikely a website would be willing to take on the legal risk of the mistakes that could be made with the process.

The forms and their instructions are available though.
