The Legal Aid Society of San Diego, Inc. hosts a no-cost Bankruptcy Self-Help Center for Pro Se Filers at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, 325 West F Street, San Diego every Wednesday from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. No appointments are necessary. The Self-Help Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Weinberger Courthouse in the Court Library.
The Bankruptcy Self-Help Center’s purpose is to assist Chapter 7 filers who are appearing as himself or herself and not using a lawyer (pro se) and who may be having difficulty with the bankruptcy process. The Self-Help Center provides assistance at no charge, and there are no income qualifications or barriers. However, the Self-Help Center will not take cases on an ongoing basis nor represent filers in court. They will not handle Chapter 13 cases or adversary proceedings, but will refer them to a panel of bankruptcy attorneys who will be providing free legal work (pro bono).
Additional information about the Self-Help Center is contained in English and in Spanish in this flyer.
