Should I really be filing for Bankruptcy?

Should I really be filing for Bankruptcy?

How to tell if you should really be filing for bankruptcy.
I once filed a Bankruptcy for a single mom, who brought her 4-year-old son to my office. My client explained to her son why they had to be there. After two hours of work, the little boy quietly played with his video game and a few times, he respectfully interrupted and would ask his mom a question. As I stepped out of my office for a few minutes, I asked my client if it was ok for her son to have some chocolates that were in a bowl on my side table. She said yes.
