  • First off you have to qualify to file bankruptcy. There are a few different types of bankruptcy. Also know that any student loans will not and cannot be discharged in any bankruptcy case! My suggestion is to meet with a bankruptcy attorney! Usually it is a free consultation to discuss your options! There will be a lawyers fee, but if you are filing you will stop payments on your debt and will have the money to pay! I recommend if you decide going through with it USE A LAWYER, this is no time to try and save a buck by doing it yourself! If you have anymore questions I will do my best to answer them, just send me a message!

  • We were told by two BK lawyers that we did not make enough money to file. Good luck
