I plan on filing chapter 7. My question is, I plan to use my tax return to pay for a lawyer and filing fee for court. I've see in some posts that the tax return is taken, is it ok to file this month and get the return and spend it or should I save up and then go to the lawyer. Also can anyone tell me what the filing fee is for chapter 7 and also I live in New York City and what would the going rate be for a lawyer to charge, so I will know what to pay or really expect to pay and if they are giving me a overpriced quote. Thanks for any help and advice.
