I can afford maybe $2,000 max. I need help filing for a divorce with minor child. My ex abandoned me during my pregnancy and can not be located (I tried). I don't want child support or ANYTHING, just custody of my child. I also need to file bankruptcy. I have practically no assets (no lie) other than my car. I can give it up, as long as I'm able to buy another really cheap one. I'm just over my head in debt from my early teens and twenties, and I need FULL bankruptcy. Is this possible with my budget or am I trying to do the impossible?P.S. My ex has been M.I.A. for exactly one year. Debts include one car repossession (2006), cosmetic surgery bill (2006), emergency medical bills, owed debts to apartment complexes including one judgement for carpet repair (2009), utilities, and old library dues.
