I have almost $25000 in credit card debts. I lost my job and my wife is filing for divorce. I can't pay the debts. So how do go for debt write off
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 8 months ago

The credit card companies won't likely agree to forgive the debt, but they might be willing to reduce it or forego some interest if you can continue to pay something... Or you could consider filing bankruptcy to discharge the debt if you weren't concerned about your credit at this point..

.

But there really isn't a clean way out of this other than bankruptcy..

.

I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
