Bankruptcy is NOT the "fresh start" that is sometimes advertised, unless you consider having to rebuild your credit virtually "from scratch" a fresh start.  After bankruptcy, any loans you qualify for will charge a much higher interest rate than what you may have paid before.  And it is harder to obtain credit after a bankruptcy. 

Please read the articles on this site and consider what could happen very carefully before going ahead.  Years ago (1993), I filed under Chapter 13 and it's been a haul since then to get good credit, which is why I discourage filing bankruptcy.  And never do so if your debt is an "unsecured" debt like credit cards.

Why are you filing? I would not file for Bk unless it is absolutely needed. If you are just trying to straighten up your credit reports; give these guys a call. Credit Pro's 1-877-235-0324. A Bk stays on your report for 10 years. Which is a red flag to most lenders....
