Just curious if anyone knew any good internet resources on filing for bankruptcy. Or if you have personal experience and advice that would be great to. Thanks

You could say that.. I won't get into details because I know this is a CP forum and no one wants to hear it. Basicaly from the past year I have so many medical bills and bills related to medical bills that I'll never in a lifetime be able to pay them off. So it's been reccomended (repeatedly) that I file for bankruptcy....
It scares the heck out of me to be looking at that at 22, but I really don't have any other choice right now.

Go to the library and see what bankruptcy guides they have.  But bankruptcy laws are complex and have all kinds of exemptions and other quirks.  To do it right, with the least risk in the future, seriously consider talking to a lawyer or seeing what public or nonprofit legal assistance is available.  Hospital bills are supposedly negotiable when the patient can't afford to pay.  But I have no experience in any of this and can only say Good luck.

There maybe a way to just file bankruptcy on the medical bills and not affect your other finances. I have a friend who is looking into it for their high 6 figure medical bills.

Thaks for the tips guys, I was afraid I'd have to go to a lawyer to do it right.
