    Can a person file bankruptcy from jail? Can they file on their own(Pro Se)? What county to file in--/the county of imprisonment or where the debts were incurred? Are fines, costs, and restitution dischargable? If someone had power of attorney for the one filing from prison, if possible, could they appear on their behalf if necessary?
    Any help with these questions would be appreciated.

    Haven't used these but you might post your questions at the below links as well.

    The first site looks like its setup much like askmehelpdesk... it looks the easiest to post a thread and look for answers.

    The second isn't setup as cleanly, but you may get your question answered here as well.

    Someone at askme may have the answers you need, but might be good to comfirm with other sources.
