I just want to comment on this one since my hubby and I filed last year.
There are some situations where you are better off filing than to try and
pay everything off. We had to file or continue to live in motels, we could
not get into an apartment with how bad ours was and it wasn't that we had
gone out and run up bills it was all poor budgeting on our parts.

Why don't you use the money you have or will have to pay off your debt? I
have 4 children and have had cancer twice with major medical bills and have
paid for all our bills. We just had to wait to get the things we wanted. I
don't think its fair for people to run up bills for others to pay with
higher interest and higher prices. I don't mean to sound nasty but I just
don't think its fair.
