    I need Advice!!! I am stressing over money! I have an awful credit score, have filed chapter 7, had a car re-possesed etc… these things mainly happened to me due to a divorce and a job loss, (no fault of my own, the company downsized and the site was closed).I only have one credit card I am behind on (balance approx. $700.00). The rest of my debt is old electric bills, cable bills, doctor bills etc… I need to chat with someone for advice before my head explodes! I do have a full time job at approx. $34000 a year. Any thoghts ???
