    Hi Kau

    The Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) can advise you as to the specific details applicable to your circumstances to file for bankruptcy. Generally they may suggest alternatives to bankruptcy, answer any queries you may have, or if not applicable to you, they will provide forms which must be completed.

    Contact AFSA Welcome to AFSA — Australian Financial Security Authority or connect with a lawyer to help you through this process.

    Thanks, Louise. I had a quick look at the fees they're charging and have changed my mind. I haven't had any work for three months and my wife is just getting enough for our rent and $50 groceries plus whatever is left on the power, gas and water different week's. Then there're two debts I have to pay from being out of work for nine months in 2012.

    I looked at the fees. I'm not sure which ones apply..but if someone is flat broke, how can they pay those fees??

    I hope you are able to sort this out and get a job etc. Sorry for your predicament.
