If you are thinking about bankruptcy, think again and again.  It hurts your credit for at least 10 years and rebuilding credit after a bankruptcy is difficult.  Been there.

You may wish to consult with a bankruptcy attorney and LISTEN to their advice. Most will give a free initial consultation and provide alternatives that may help avoid bankruptcyaltogether. Unless your debts are things that could be repossessed and sold to reclalim the money, you may harm yourself more by filing bankruptcy than by trying to negotiate payment agreements with creditors.

Since Credit Karma's purpose is to help people better understand and use credit, I suggest taking the time to read the articles on this site so you can learn what you need to know about credit.  And, you may want to check out Dave Ramsey's site to learn about making payment agreements so you can repay debts easier.
