Thank you for your swift response. I am scheduled to be in court tomorrow but am very much considering bankruptcy since I have other debt that is looming and am unable to keep up with payments. The confession of judgement that they wish for me to sign also has other debts that have been assigned to their collection agency but are not part of this lawsuit. The total debt is around $7500. They want $1000 down and have it paid off in 2 years. I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX my current financial situation, that I would be able to afford this. I am wondering.....A. Do I need to show up in court tomorrow if I am going to file for bankruptcy? B. Does bankruptcy, in your opinion, seem like my best alternative? My current debt load is between $15,000 and $17,000. Thank you for your help!
I do realize I put you in an awkward position but I certainly appreciate your candid response. Thank you for your assistance. You have been very helpful! Have a great day!
