Question:

Dear Steve,

I need a friend to help me. Time is running out. Sold some items and pawned some while still searching for second job.

Gail

Answer:

Dear Gail,

I certainly hope you find that second job soon. But don’t the answer might not be to keep selling things and pawning items. That just rides a slow train to the bottom.

Quite possibly the reason a legitimate lender won’t give you a loan is that you are a big credit risk in your current situation. The hardest time to borrow money is when you need it out of desperation.

Your major options for dealing with problem debt are:

  • increase your income, which you are trying to do.
  • reduce your expenses, which it sounds like you have already done.
  • eliminate your debt, typically with bankruptcy.

You should find a great local bankruptcy attorney and discuss eliminating your medical bills and other debt in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. That is the least expensive way out of debt in the shortest period of time. It will also allow you to rebound faster and rebuild a solid future financial foundation.

If your instant reaction to this advice is bankruptcy is a last resort and will ruin your credit, then read this and this.
