My wife passed away and she accumulated over $150,000 in medical bills mostly emergency visits and needed surgeries to keep her alive before she died. Our home is in both of our names and we still owe over $70,000 on the house. I'm 62 years old and make less than $3,500 a month before taxes. I feel I could work the rest of my life and never be able to pay this off. Should I file for bankruptcy to get rid of the debt?
It is not yet a yes/no question. The first thing to do is talk to a some BKI lawyers for specific advice. Most BK lawyers won't charge you anything for a consult. That way you can find out what to expect before you might jump out of the old frying pan.
