Yes. The petitioner can contact the bankruptcy trustee that is in charge of his or her BK for the procedure necessary. It is understandable that persons in legal situations would like to avoid attorney fees. It is usually not a good idea, as the end results are often more expensive than if one had obtained legal representation beforehand. (Not looking for business, just stating facts.)

How much are the payments on a chapter 13?

The petitioner submits the repayment schedule/plan to the court and the court decides whether or not it is acceptable. The best option for the petitioner is to retain a qualified bankruptcy attorney rather than self-filing, as the forms, required documentation and so forth can be complicated to say the least. If the petitioner qualifies for the bankruptcy he or she should be aware that they will be placed on a very strict budget, which is one reason so many people fail to complete a chapter 13 BK ("Adjustments of Debts of an Individual With Regular Income").
