I have been disabled since 2003. I have no assets, and receive an SSD payment. I had numerous debts. I could't pay all of them but managed to pay some. Most of these debts will come off my credit report this year. I do fear a judgement, but I will never have the means to pay anything. What should I do?I have incurred about $70,000.00 in medical bills in the last 2 years.
