    An illegal alien can file bankruptcy. But, you must have proper identification and documentation requested by the trustee in your case. Medical bills are dischargeable in bankruptcy. Section 109 makes no mention of legal status as a requirement to be able to seek bankruptcy protection. www.chicagomoneylawyer.com
