Once you and your attorney meet you can share your plan for your financial future. Yes, there is a future. It might seem very cloudy at the moment, but financial reorganization happens to millions and it is not the end of the world. Many do recover and prosper.

Your attorney will be a good advocate for you, but you must be your own best advocate, because no attorney knows fully what your goals are.

The advice given by your attorney may be to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 consumer bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy will have you selling most assets and paying off those you owe. Chapter 13 will let you keep some assets and organize a repayment schedule for creditors.

Or the advice might be simpler and keep you out of the courts: work out a private repayment program and watch your pennies.

Listen to the advice, share your hopes and dreams, and start on the recovery path that financial reorganization can lead to.
