If you want to file for bankruptcy successfully then the first thing you should do is to find a bankruptcy lawyer.  The best way to find a bankruptcy lawyer is to ask someone to refer you to someone or look for one online.  If you find someone then try to find out a little information about them via the internet.  Usually Google, Avvo, or Yelp will have reviews about the attorney and or practice.  Once you meet with the attorney you will be quoted a price and while that price may be agreeable to you, you still may have a difficult time coming up with the funds.  So often times I get a question similar to the following “can I have my friend or family member pay for my attorney fees.”  The answer to that question is yes, you can personally pay your own fees, or you can have a friend or a family member pay for your fees.  Don’t expect a bankruptcy attorney to allow you to pay with a credit card, usually cash or a check will be the only method they accept.
