If you are determined to file for bankruptcy and would qualify, it is possible to do it from abroad. However, you would still need to fill up and sign the appropriate forms yourself. Forms for that are downloadable from the website of the bankruptcy court of the state. After filing, there is a need to ask the permission of the court to allow a non-appearance of the debtor. This is where a competent representative is needed, preferably a bankruptcy lawyer who knows the ins and outs of bankruptcy procedures.

The first step before actually filing for bankruptcy is to consult with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer for proper guidance and advice for options that are available.
