This is a common situation,


Unless you can contact the lender and create some payment plan for the debt, the cosigner is legally obligated to pay your debts.


The cosigner could file a bankruptcy, or should consider contacting the lender and try to work out a settlement with them, and you could pay your friend to amount.

Will bankruptcy in this case lessen the dept I would have to pay.

If he threatens a bankruptcy they may settle with him, if you filed a bankruptcy two years age the loan should have been discharged, and you would not be liable.
