I am overwhelmed by all the information that I read about bankruptcy and I need to know what is the first thing I should do. I am delinquent on house payments, credit card bills and medical bills. I keep getting notices and calls from the debt collectors and I want to tell them that I am filing for bankruptcy but I don’t know what else to do next. Please help.
