It am ceasing it tomorrow. I cannot file the unemployment claim today online but have to wait until tomorrow. I know this was an incredibly stupid thing to do.
One additional question, as I mentioned, I was in an abusive marriage and my soon to be ex-husband controlled our personal finances to the extent I was not allowed a debit card, etc. When I finally left and filed for divorce, I learned we had $180K in credit card debt and three mortgages with no equity in the homes. As such, I am preparing to file Chapter 7 once the divorce is final (any day now). I have retained a BK attorney and was wondering if the BK proceedings will trigger an investigation?
I've no doubt you've encountered people that have really gotten themselves into a bind because of their own stupidity and desperation, but I probably win the award on this one. I greatly appreciate your help.
At 48, I've lost nearly everything -- financially and personally and really was not thinking clearly. I am now faced with the consequences of poor decisions, although choosing to divorce was not one of them. Again, thank you for your help.
