Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
I'm $85,000 in credit card debt. Have been unemployed for 12 years because of a jealous boyfriend, who scammed me & then left me. Current with monthly payments until now, because of help from my elderly mother, whose money has run out, and friends who can't help anymore. I was borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. Charging things for others so that I could have money to make payments and live on. I was hoping for some kind of miracle. I can't do this anymore! My back is to the wall! Can I file for bankruptcy? Everything I read said that I need proof of income and tax forms, that I don't have. I don't even know if my boyfriend claimed me as his dependent. What can I do? Help!
They won't deny me if I can't produce copies of taxes or W2's?
