I've asked a lot of questions about bankruptcy on this site and I always receive "please speak with an experienced attorney about your case." The challenge I'm having is if I did have the financial means to speak and/or hire an attorney, I would just that. So, the question I have to all attorney's out there, where would a disabled veteran with two children find assistance with their bankruptcy case? More specifically, assistance with completing their exemptions.
The first thing is to get your question into the correct category. Avvo uses an algorithm to put your question in a category, and you saying you're a veteran results in Avvo putting your question in the military law section. I'm moving to bankruptcy. You may be able to find a lawyer willing to cut you a break on fees due to your veteran status. You may also want to try to file for bankruptcy yourself, but that is usually not advisable. Good luck.

DO NOT file yourself. There are lawyers including myself who may help you pro bono or for a reduced fee if you truly cannot afford counsel. If you live in the District, contact the Legal Aid Society of DC.
