Hope this perspective helps!
I agree with Dorothy. Also, if you are considering bankruptcy as a way to deal with this debt, then some attorneys do charge a fixed fee for assisting you with filing for bankruptcy. You would also be required to pay a filing fee to the court of around $281 to $306 for Chapter 7 or 13. Also, there may be fees for the required credit counseling, anywhere from $15 up to $50 per course, and there are two courses to complete. The attorney fixed fee for bankruptcy can vary so widely from region to region, even within a state, that it is usually better to check on that yourself. Always remember, though, that price should not be your only factor to use when selecting a bankruptcy attorney. You should also consider their experience, in other words, how many bankruptcy cases do they usually handle on a monthly basis. You should ask if they appear in bankrutpcy court frequently.
Good luck !
