See an attorney. Most bankruptcy attorneys offer one free session -- you come in, fill out a long list of questions listing your assets and your debts, and then get 1 hour to talk to the attorney about your options.

Even if you decide to not file, take your questions in, and get them answered by the people who know.


Unfortunately, the OP has run into a problem - the attorney WANTS you to file BK - because thats how they make their money.

Objective advice is NOT had by someone with something to gain/lose from the advice given.
