Welcome lawpuppy,

1. Your children will have to pay their own tuition. You have declared bankruptcy and need to take care of yourself now or they will be doing it in another 20 years.

2. What student loans do you have? Are these yours or PLUS loans for the kids?

Investing is not this board's forte, though there are lots of cross posters from the investing boards.

I don't know that aggressive investing is what you need right now. You have a real need to understand exactly what got you to where you are right now. Unless you declared because of medical debt, you have a lot of learning to do both about your spending habits and investing.

A first post on an internet board asking strangers about aggresive mutual funds tells me you have not done your research about the Motley Fool, this board, nor investing.

I wish you luck. Unless you have a radical change of thought, it doesn't seem like you are going to have much success in the financial arena.
