I am going to file bankruptcy and have stopped paying all my credit cards. I still have no money to pay an attorney.
Should I skip a couple of mortgage payments in order to pay an attorney?
I don’t think that’s going to help you much. If you want to keep the house in bankruptcy you’ll need to either be current with the house or be able to make the regular mortgage payment plus a bit of the amount you are behind if you enter a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
If you can’t afford to keep the house, well then, that’s a different matter.
Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
