Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy Pros and Cons

Is there anybody in particular I should contact about these options?

Yes. If you are behind on your payments, the collectors for each of your creditors may already be calling or writing you. You might be more successful if you phone each creditor, ask for the collection department, ask and note the name of the person you talk to, and explain your intent to repay the account and your need to stretch out the number of monthly payments and reduce their size. You might offer to come to the collection department office to discuss your situation. Ask each creditor to agree to a voluntary plan for the repayment of your debts.
