    I don't have a specific question...just looking for moral support and some semblance of comfort. After several years of scrambling post housing-crash, we are finally at the end of the trail. It's time to wave the white flag and dump the debt and big house with two mortgages. Comes at a bad...

  3. Financial hardship
    We haven't decided on bankruptcy, but we're doing all of our research on every angle possible, so we're filling out all the "homework" paperwork given to us by the lawyer and I also tried to do a "Means Test" online, which left us totally confused. The test required me to indicate mine and my...

    I haven't been on here for about 3 weeks give or take. For those of you who have listened to me for many months we turned in the final paperwork today. Well, we mailed it to the lawyer. About 3 weeks ago with our last appointment we turned in alot of it but the total amount was massive as it...

    Well we met with the bankruptcy lawyer today and much to our surprise, while willing to file, he said his advice was NOT to file. At least at this time and that maybe it wouldn't be necessary. This is the same one we saw back in January. He was a Trustee for many years. Want to say 20...
