All this has depleted all funds
My problem is I have maxed out my CCs & am in debt $70k(give or take few grand) & it’s all u secured. Also, I do not own a home.
Finally, 80% of my debt is w/NFCU & my credit score has always been good & I’ve never defaulted b; I hit these difficult times

From the brief information you’ve shared it sure sounds like you are totally tapped out. I doubt you have much, if any cash remaining around and you are probably limping month-to-month.
At this point a repayment approach is probably not a reasonable solution. The first step should be for you to meet with a local bankruptcy attorney.
This financial second chance and fresh start will allow you to start a new life after the divorce and close the door on the old unmanageable debt. The goal moving forward will be for you to live within your income.
