I have started a business repairing credit and filing bankruptcy's as a petition preparer.

Asked about 5 years ago - Louisville, KY

Since starting my business we have been continuously harassed by a Federal Court Judge in the Western District. He has fined use repeatedly for no reason other than to get the money from our people to pay their fees to the court. In our district they do not receive federal money concerning bankruptcy so the local attorney's fail to mention to the no asset clients they are considered fee waivers. These are people with very few options financially. They are being denied their rights and we are continuously being harassed. How can I put a stop to this travesty? No attorney's in the local area will touch our case and are intimidated by the judge in question that was assigned by President: Gerald Ford
