I spent 20 years digging myself deeper into debt. However, if I am being completely honest, I never really noticed the hole I was digging. Instead, it seemed one day I woke up and there I was staring at this seemingly insurmountable amount of debt. I wanted nothing more than to purchase a house but I knew I couldn't secure a mortgage.
After consulting with a bankruptcy attorney, I decided filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy was my best option. I knew it would be a long road to financial recovery but I believed I could do it. It has now been nearly seven years since I filed for bankruptcy and today, I finally closed on the purchase of my home. I am starting this site to both honor that accomplishment and help others like me to accomplish this goal in their own life as well.
