In over my head!!

I am considering filing bankruptcy and wanted to reach out the community before I looked into it.  I currently have approximately 40,000 in credit card debt due to husband's illness and inability to work.  We are making payments but it has become overwhelming.  What should we do?

Re: In over my head!!

I'm sure this isn't the answer you're looking for.. Meet with a couple lawyers and see what they say. From the little information you provided it is very hard for us, even with a lot of info, to tell you what's best.

Everyone's situation is so different.
