What are some of the pre-filing mistakes people make?

Once someone decides to file for bankruptcy, there are several pitfalls they often fall into. Some decide they want to accumulate debt in hopes of having it restructured in bankruptcy. Others ignore their current situation and pay back family and friends or ignore lawsuits filed against them. Others make the mistake of trying to save money and represent themselves in bankruptcy. Some even aren’t completely honest about their financial situation with their lawyer. All are costly mistakes.
