Disadvantages of using software in filing bankruptcy

People today often take advantage of using computer software and internet technology to make completing tasks more convenient, including bankruptcy filing. Though the internet is a great source for relevant information on how to address financial issues, people should be aware that filing bankruptcy on their own using a software can be risky for mistakes made when filing can be financially costly. 

People may find it cheaper if they file for bankruptcy on their own using available computer programs, however, they might not have as much debt forgiven by creditors using this method. Individuals who have decided to use computer programs when filing for bankruptcy are also vulnerable to the fickle nature of creditors and trustees. Though bankruptcy computer programs can be helpful in the bankruptcy process, it is important to note these systems are limited. They are unable to give personalized advice and still require manual input from the individual seeking financial assistance, giving many opportunities to make costly errors. 

Bankruptcy computer programs in reality have many limitations.
