A: That is not a question that can be answered in this thread. That, most likely, takes a consultation; an understanding of how bankruptcy works and how it is different than debt consolidation. If you want a shock answer it will be, in my opinion, never do a debt consolidation. But, I cannot say that definitively because I do not know your circumstances.

I would like to schedule a consultation to talk with you to discuss.

A: You must list all your debt, not just credit cards and medical debt.
