What can the debtor do if he/she is unable to pay the attorney fees for bankruptcy? Can't he/she file one?

If you're already into the process, then the lawyer can sue you too as the fees is also treated like another debt.

Well in that case, you have to go for pro se bankruptcy, which isn't that easy.

When you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy, most of the plan payments will go toward paying attorney fees. After you have paid the attorney fees, the Chapter 13 bankruptcy trustee will distribute your payments amongst your creditors.
