The Answer

Dear Jody,

First off, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss.

Considering that making the payment was apparently dependent on both your incomes, it is probably unreasonable to expect that you will be able to make the payment on your own.

Let’s start with the basics.

I’d suggest you first read How to Get Out of Debt. The Honest and Unvarnished Truth and The Truth About The Success Rates, Failure Rates and Completion Rates of Credit Counseling, Debt Settlement, and Bankruptcy. They will give you a great overview of what we need to deal with to get you moving in the right direction.

Then use the free How to Get Out of Debt Calculator to review your options.

Big Hug!
