I don't have any income and can't get a job, will bankruptcy help?
I am currently unemployed and a stay at home mom. I have been denied multiple jobs because of my credit history. I have no personal property, everything is in my guy's name. I can't afford to pay anything and I haven't been able to since 2012. Can I even file bankruptcy? Is this the right answer?

NO.  You don't have anything (jewelry, real estate, financial investments) that could be liquidated to settle the debts.  Consult with a bankruptcy attorney (first contact is usually free) and you'll find out what can or cannot be done.
