I have a $40,000 garnishment
just coming into play, although it dates back many years.
At lease $20,000 is interest, and the interest is accumulating at 12%. These lovely people bought up debt during a divorce when I got hit from all sides, the original debt was more like $10,000, and I have an ex who owes me 500,000. He caused me to lose my house, my business (ok I was naïve), but no lawyer I have talked to wants to mess.
Would a bankruptcy get this monkey off my back? I know I still have rights for what is in my divorce decree, but we live hours apart now and I really don't want to travel 5 hours each time I go to court. My kids used to be a concern, but they are of the ME generation and will stick with the one who pays their phone and insurance and everything else, even they are all grown now. They don't like me at all these days.
Do you have anything HELPFUL to contribute? I don't want to pay for bla, bla, bla.
