Usually, once you are in over your head there are only three ways your debts can go away. Either your creditors will forgive your debts (not likely), or somebody will pay off your debts for you, or you file for bankruptcy.
Most people have an aversion to filing for bankruptcy as they somehow think that they are doing something wrong by filing for bankruptcy. The important thing to remember is that when your creditors loaned you money, they did not do so out of the goodness of their hearts. They loaned you money simply because they could make a profit. In other words, they made a BUSINESS DECISION to loan you money. When you file for bankruptcy, you are simply making a BUSINESS DECISION that you can no longer afford to pay your debts, just as your creditors made a business decision when they gave you the loans. Bankruptcy is a business decision, not a morality play.
