Dear Disabled,

My advice is not to sit and wait. Just because the statute of limitations runs out does not mean they can’t attempt to collect the debt for ever.

I would suggest you consider closing the door completely on these old debts with bankruptcy and then you can focus on moving forward with your life.

The good news is that if you are eligible for a VA mortgage you will be able to get a VA mortgage loan two years after your bankruptcy has been discharged.

The best step to take next is to meet with a local bankruptcy attorney you like and discuss the situation. The appoint is generally free and you’ll walk away knowing if bankruptcy sounds like the right approach for you to take.

If you do decide to go the bankruptcy route, then follow my easy plan to rebuild your credit.
