I chose a 10 because upsolve is very user friendly! the questionnaire is straightforward and it’s very easy to edit the forms sections. bankruptcy isn’t pleasant and with an attorney it’s expensive but this program makes life a little more bearable!

Even though the site didn’t help me, it seems very easy to use.
Koehler P. Mar. 10, 2020
Well people need a free service. however, i have hit a wall in my 5 days. it appears that there is a prejudice against disabled people in your computer system. since there is no way to contact anyone i will run past my 5 days. you add disabled people's insurance benefits to their income! ! i would question if you or the courts dof this to others?
Holly K. Mar. 6, 2020
I've been needing to claim bankruptcy for years and i was so relieved and i am so very grateful for upsolve. poor people now have the ability to claim bankruptcy without an attorney and get a new start on life...rather than continuing to struggle. so many people are unable to handle the stress of overwhelming debt and hurt themselves further with self medicating thru drugs, alcohol, or even suicide. what if upsolve is actually saving lives by assisting the poor to get out of financial holes!
Ralph M. Mar. 6, 2020

Deleon R. Jan. 18, 2020
The process was very clear, thorough, and helpful. it walked through every part of the bk forms that i would have surely struggled to fill out on my own without a lawyer.
Alayna P. Jan. 16, 2020
What is an emotionally stressful decision to make, the ease, encouraging explanations and facts etc... have made my bankruptcy endeavor far less stressful.
Patrick Q. Jan. 16, 2020
Easy to use, very ‘affable & sympathetic’ interface. the only thing i would suggest is providing and easier way to contact support/ask question. i am at the stage of taking the online credit course but won’t have the $14 fee until next tuesday, outside your arbitrary 5 day time limit. so i’m afraid i will have to start over and won’t for lack of,energy/exasperation.

The representatives at upsolve are incredible. they have been extremely kind, compassionate and conveyed very important information to me which, in turn, are preventing me from hiring an attorney. they all have excellent communicative skills and are very positive people that give to me hope in a very difficult and sad situation.

Charita S. Jan. 7, 2020
Using upsolve was very simple and easy to use. i could not imagine doing this myself and feel that this is what lower income individuals need. it's hard to come up with thousands of dollars to file bankruptcy and this really helps put your mind at ease. i would definitely recommend this to anyone within the income limits to use.
Tammy H. Jan. 7, 2020
I was at a loss. i just had my vehicle repossessed, i had been out of work for over 6 months and could not afford a lawyer. i had found the forms to file on my own but had no idea which forms i needed or even how to complete most of them. then i found your site. so far upsolve has taken so much stress off of me. your site is so easy to use. all i have to do is answer questions and the forms i need are filled out for me. thank god i found you.

Am spreading the word about your organization. i am grateful for your team in helping me. without upsolve i would have been lost. i didn’t have the attorney fee to file chapter 7 so upsolve stepped in at no cost and gave me a chance. can you say discharged? praise god because my case has been discharged. i will always be thankful. thank you and may god bless you all.
Leanna L. Sep. 16, 2019
Just wanted to reach out and thank everyone at upsolve who helped me with my bankruptcy. i had my 341 meeting yesterday. there were a lot of people there with their attorneys, of course. i kept thinking to myself, if only they knew about upsolve it could have saved them a lot of money. there was only two of us without attorneys in that large room full of people. anyhow, i appreciate eveything you did for me. yay’ i’m finally done! thank you so much!
Mary T. Sep. 3, 2019
Upsolve was really easy for me. you enter your information…it is reviewed by an attorney and then you print it our and send it in. the trustee was impressed enough to add upsolve to a website that helps low income individuals in my state.
C. Crocker Aug. 4, 2019
I have recently successfully used upsolve as an alternative to going into even more debt to pay the overpriced fees that private bankruptcy attorneys can charge. i have found that upsolve is an organization sincerely dedicated to the financial benefit of and equality of all; making financial stability an option for all, not just for those who have the means. they have made it easily possible for those without the money for a bankruptcy attorney. there are lots of reasons that people find themselves in debt, some are of their own making and some due to unfortunate circumstances beyond their control. for those who have the resources, the climb out of a mistake or mishap can easily be done. but for those of us who don’t, climbing out of the financial dirt pit isn’t so easy. what if you don’t have a shovel? and even if you do, it just doesn’t make sense to climb out of one hole, just to dig another. i would recommend upsolve to anyone who is diligently looking for debt relief without the financial burden of an attorney. i will say that when i started, i wasn’t sure how it would go, would i get help from them if i ran into any problems? so, i was so awed and pleased at getting a response within 24 hours of my first question. and when i had another question, it was again answered within 24 hours…. and… by the same person! i was amazed and tickled. i felt like i had my own trouble shooting guru on the other end… one who actually cared! but, would it work when i got to court? turns out it went perfectly, without a single hitch. from the court clerk who filed my paperwork to the court attorney assigned to my case. both commented on my pristine paperwork. so, yeah, i literally did a little happy dance walking out of the courthouse. yeah, i got some looks, but i didn’t care.
Sarah B. Jul. 24, 2019
My fico score was 437 just over a year ago; i learned that score when i was denied a switch to a cheaper cell phone carrier because my credit was so low. i thought it was funny (in a dark way) that i could not save money with a cheaper plan because i didn't have the credit. it really is more expensive to be poor, especially with bad credit. that's part of the beauty of upsolve - it was designed for those of us who may be too poor to get a lawyer and didn't have the tools, time, or confidence to do it ourselves.
Aerial L. Jun. 25, 2019
After my divorce and my alimony ultimately stopping, i was left with thousands of dollars of debt, which included credits cards, a car loan, and medical bills. i struggled every single month to put food on the table and pay most of the most important bills; like rent, car, and electric bills. i got to the point where i had sold a lot of my furniture, paintings, and my son's old toys just to survive. i had tried consolidating the debt and living on a shoe string but nothing was working. finally i made the decision to file and turned to upsolve to walk me through the process. if you are at the end of your rope, consider the bankruptcy process. you are not a bad person. you are not irresponsible. sometimes life just gives us lemons, it's your responsibility to deal with it as best as you can and make lemonade. i overcame the fear by looking into my son's eyes and realizing that i have to better myself for him, no matter what...and i did! i liked that i could email at any time and receive an answer to questions almost immediately. i am so much more responsible with money now. i no longer have or live on credit cards. my slate is clean and i have been working hard to keep it that way.
Samuel C. Jun. 25, 2019
I fell into debt from medical bills and a layoff causing me to fall further behind. i would say it is not as scary as you think. upsolve was there every step of the way and made my experience as seamless as possible. i just faced my fear and everything turned out amazing and i’m debt free! i liked how it took me step by step through the process and helped me to answer the questions by explaining exactly what i need to fill out. it changed my life by giving me a better outlook and having a chance at good credit again.
Joe G. Jun. 23, 2019
I fell into debt originally after going through a period of time where i was unemployed, and lost my health insurance benefits. my debt was a combination of medical bills that went unpaid due to not having health insurance, as well as credit card debt that i accrued while trying to stay above water. if there is no chance in being able to recover within a year or two financially after going through hardship, filing bankruptcy makes sense to me. i felt like i would never be able to end the constant debt collection calls. it would have taken me over 5-6 years to have been able to pay everything off with what little i have left over after my bills are paid. i really had a great experience with everyone that i talked to while going through the process of filing bankruptcy up until it was all done and my case was discharged. it's great that people have a free option when there isn't an extra few hundred dollars to hire an attorney while going through the bankruptcy process. after filing bankruptcy, i acquired several new lines of credit which have been able to help me start building my credit again. i just discharged a few months ago and my fico scores are in the high 600s. i started a new business and was able to use some of the credit for startup capital, and to make cash flow management easier. after filing bankruptcy, i acquired several new lines of credit which have been able to help me start building my credit again. i just discharged a few months ago and my fico scores are in the high 600s. i started a new business and was able to use some of the credit for startup capital, and to make cash flow management easier.
Brittany W. Jun. 21, 2019
I was young and given too many credit cards. always thinking i could pay them off. at first, i was great at paying everything off. then spending became too easy. it spiraled out of control. i lost control of my finances and myself. at 24 i found myself in crippling debt and unsure what to do next. bankruptcy can happen to anyone. i’m 24 years old and just filed bankruptcy. it’s a chance to restart and i’m glad i did it. i was terrified to do it but i started doing some research. very successful people had filed bankruptcy and it helped me to see that this doesn’t mean the end, it meant a new beginning. i didn’t want to wait any longer and push myself deeper in a hole. my best advice is to just do it. research successful stories after bankruptcy and consider all your options. if it wasn’t for upsolve i wouldn’t have been able to file. i don’t have the money for a lawyer and i didn’t know anything about bankruptcy. upsolve made the process so easy and i can’t believe it’s 100% free. this is a fantastic nonprofit and i’m so grateful for this service. i am still waiting for my bankruptcy to go through but even the process has changed my life. i monitor my money way more closely. i consider every dollar i make and where it should go. i finally feel like i have some control over my life. being able to file and use upsolve to take things into my own hands made me realize i can recover and get back on my feet again.
Sandra W. Jun. 21, 2019
Upsolve was very supportive throughout the process. it was easier than i thought it would be. once i found out about upsolve, things clicked into place for me. they were able to teach me how to file for bankruptcy and do it where they would help me. and they would tell me what i needed to bring to the court when. and they told me everything i needed to know. and they helped me through the process if i couldn’t figure something out. i would just reach out to upsolve and they would help fix my problem. now that i have filed for bankruptcy i can keep as much money in the bank as i want. i have two savings accounts. one for me and one for my son who is sixteen. i don’t have to worry about the credit cards taking money out of my bank account.
Kevin R. Jun. 18, 2019
My debt was slowly approaching my ability to pay my monthly expenses. i lost my job and knew at that point i would need to do something. credit "fixing" services were out of the question. my credit repayment history is perfect with not one late payment in over 12 years. after researching, i decided to get ahead of the game and instead of allowing my credit accounts to move to collection, repossession, etc. i decided to file bankruptcy. the decision was not easy, but in my case, it was necessary. my biggest fear was the embarrassment and was worried that i would be treated like a deadbeat by the people i would encounter during the process. i answered the question honestly, followed all of the instructions, and provided all paperwork that upsolve stated i would need. i was able to file at the courthouse, communicate with my trustee, and complete the 341 hearing without a hitch. everything went extremely smoothly. i would have likely not been able to file pro se with out upsolve. considering my flawless payment history and filing proactively, my credit score actually went up as my accounts were closed due to the bankruptcy. i plan to use the budgeting tools that were provided by the 2nd online class that is required before the case is discharged. thank you to upsolve and those that give their time to assist those of us that would otherwise not be able to file bankruptcy due to the likelihood of excessive attorney fees, etc. also, it was empowering to know i was taking an active role in the life decision i made.
Crystal P. Jun. 17, 2019
Like many other americans, i fell into a large amount of debt due to a hospitalization and other medical bills that inexplicably were not covered by my insurance. i was using credit to try to juggle all the payments while i tried to make money doing odd jobs and selling crafts as i had lost my job due to the illness/hospitalization. eventually, it all caught up to me and i was constantly inundated with calls and letters from my debtors and collection agencies. it was overwhelming and i could see no other way to get out from under it besides filing for bankruptcy. if you're considering bankruptcy, keep in mind that it isn't and instant fix for everything. you will have to rebuild your credit from the ground up and it will follow you for at least 7 years. it was scary, but after talking with my parents and their friends who had to file, i decided that in the long run, it would be worth it. i finally got to a point where i was fed up and as much as i really didn't want to, i had nothing left to lose. it was my only option that would allow me to actually be able to save money and afford a place to live, so i took the plunge. upsolve is awesome because it's user-friendly and very informative. if the prompts while inputting your information didn't answer my question, i could usually find the answer elsewhere on the site. it complies all the information that you need to bring with you to file into one "packet" and everything was in the correct order. i still went through and double-checked everything because that's what i do and all the info was there and correct. the filing process at the courthouse ended up taking me less than 20 minutes. i'm hoping to make a fresh start with bankruptcy. i eventually want to be a homeowner and with the bankruptcy i feel like it's a lot more plausible. right now, it is allowing me to live within my means and start rebuilding that credit.
Chris E. Jun. 16, 2019
I was living a lifestyle we couldn’t afford and, ultimately, after i lost my job, i had nowhere else to go. for me, realizing that i didn’t need to pay an attorney to file was huge, once i decided i was out of options. my fear of filing for bankruptcy was simply overcome by desperation and the realization that i had exhausted all other options. upon that realization, i decided i had to file. i had tried to download the forms provided by the government, but they did not easily allow for adding additional creditors, etc. without making a mess of the entire form’s formatting. after spending days filling out these forms, i realized they were too much of a mess to file. it was then i discovered upsolve and was able to complete the entire process in just a couple hours. the process was intuitive, the forms looked great when printed and the instructions were clear. it’s a relief to not have the debts hanging over my head. just one less thing to worry about. i’m not proud of it, but am glad i did it.
Dana T. Jun. 13, 2019
I fell into debt because i stopped working to take care of my parents who are both bed & wheelchair bound. they also have dementia, so i didn't want them in a facility (my father resided in a facility from september 2014 when he had a stroke to november 2017 when i had him transferred home, so i have a lot of negative experience with facilities). the main debt i needed protection for/from was my mortgage, so i really had no choice but to file. because filing was my only choice, i reasoned that corporations and many people who have more means than i file often and they use it as a tool to help them move forward. i do still sometimes feel bad (but not quite ashamed) about filing, but i have decided to not buy into the stigma of filing for bankruptcy. if the debts i had included a sports car, a 2nd home, etc., then i would feel shame! the thing i liked and appreciated the most about using upsolve was the fact that once the questions were answered, the complicated, multiple forms (or pages of the application) were automatically populated/completed. this functionality alone took so much pressure off of me; i didn't have to try to figure out legal issues while completing the application. this also made me feel confident enough to go to the hearing alone. your process/product was a lifesaver for me. i also feel that upsolve provided me with credibility; even if i had been able to complete the application on my own, the bankruptcy court would have rejected it ... i'm sure of this! filing bankruptcy has changed my life in a very positive way. even though i lost my home to foreclosure and i don't have much income (i am on the clock for 2 hours daily for taking care of my father at $12/hour, he has a caregiver for 9 hours daily), i can start over ... i can build my finances up again (when i'm able) without the burden of past debt. finding upsolve was a lifesaver! i'm so grateful!
Jacqui M. Jun. 10, 2019
I fell into debt when i decided to pick up my life and move to a new city in order to help out my brother. i was expecting to have a job waiting for me when i got here, but that turned out not to be the case, so i ended up using my credit cards for the first couple months to survive. when i finally got a job, my brother lost his, so i was putting all of my money into paying rent and buying groceries, so i started to fall behind on payments, and eventually there was just no catching back up. my advice to anyone thinking about filing for bankruptcy is to not wait. the longer you wait, the worse it is. it ended up being a lot less stressful than i expected, and i wish i hadn’t waited so long. i finally ended up filing when i started getting hit by lawsuits from collection companies. my favorite thing about upsolve was the fact that you could kind of do it at your own pace and on your own schedule. there were no appointments needed, and i ended up doing a chunk of it on the train on the way to work. it’s very good for someone with anxiety and/or a hectic schedule. bankruptcy has made my life significantly less stressful and has honestly allowed me to really start living. i actually have money left over after bills, now. i’m hoping this will allow me to start saving up for things down the road, like a car and maybe even eventually a house. bankruptcy has made my life significantly less stressful and has honestly allowed me to really start living. i actually have money left over after bills, now. i’m hoping this will allow me to start saving up for things down the road, like a car and maybe even eventually a house.

The contributing factors in my debt load were student loans, credit cards, auto loans, and medical bills. i was doing ok with repayment until i began divorce proceedings followed by having my nursing license suspended for 3 years. i would strongly advocate for bankruptcy if needed and if unable to retain an attorney use upsolve. i believe the stigma and reputation of “bankruptcy” is misleading to a lot of consumers. if you want to discharge a majority of debt and have your credit score go up then file and move forward without the monkey of debt on your back. upsolve ‘s website and support were outstanding. once i provided all the information it was a seamless transition to take the completed paperwork with the clear detailed instructions to then complete the process. i have a giant piece off my back which has lead to some serenity and restful sleep. my phone no longer rings from am through the evening with calls from collectors and my mail has decreased exponentially since filing. my credit score has improved and i have gotten a couple credit cards to begin rebuilding my credit profile. i hope to have learned enough from the past and looking toward the future in continuing building my credit and also continue my education.
Andrew B. Jun. 2, 2019
I fell into debt before i filed because of a mental illness that i developed in the most recent years. the depression caused me to look for ways to feel better. as a consequence, i spent lots of money on impulse. i consumed a lot of alcohol and bought a lot of supplements that i thought would fix me. i was only self medicating myself. i was not able to keep steady employment. the more debt that i acquired, the more inadequate that i believed myself to be in life. you don't have anything to lose except all of your debt. credit can always be rebuilt. there are law firms and companies that will help you to rebuild your credit after a bankruptcy. a secured credit card is also my recommendation. i overcame my fear of bankruptcy by putting aside my fears and reaching out for help. i knew that i was not the only one who needed a fresh start. i found out that the banks write off your delinquent debt and use it as a tax write off. then, they have a collection agency go after you! don't be afraid to let it all go. the banks weren't afraid to write it off and neither should you! what i like most about using upsolve was the care and attention to detail that went into my case. they were professionals. they knew what they were doing. they took the time to answer all of my questions and make sure that all of my paperwork was exactly right. bankruptcy has changed my life by providing me a way to reestablish myself without an outrageous obligation to a financial institution that already got a tax write off for it. i was able to get a secured credit card, a car, and an apartment. today, i have two regular credit cards that receive cash back for my purchases, my credit score is rising with my on time payments, and with my credit score rising comes the hope of my own home in the future. i am very thankful for the assistance of the upsolve team. bankruptcy has changed my life by providing me a way to reestablish myself without an outrageous obligation to a financial institution that already got a tax write off for it. i was able to get a secured credit card, a car, and an apartment. today, i have two regular credit cards that receive cash back for my purchases, my credit score is rising with my on time payments, and with my credit score rising comes the hope of my own home in the future. i am very thankful for the assistance of the upsolve team.

"can’t say enough good things about upsolve and everyone else on your team. you guys literally saved my life. it felt as if you were holding my hand every step of the way."
Ashley S. May. 30, 2019
I honestly fell into debt, because of my lack of education and resources on financial literacy. on top of not knowing how to properly care for my finances, i divorced my husband, and took on a lot of the debt he accrued during the marriage. i was drowning in debt from retail credit cards, emergency room visits, payday loans, and installment loans. if i could offer a word of advice to someone who is thinking about filing for bankruptcy, i would advise them to meet with a financial advisor first. the financial advisor can help look over the debts, and determine if they can be snowballed and paid off. in cases like mine, that was not an option. filing for bankruptcy was my saving grace. i was able to overcome my fears through focusing on the clean slate the bankruptcy would offer me. i took the time to take a dave ramsey course to learn how to rebuild my life after the bankruptcy, and through educating myself i replaced fear with courage. i decided to file because if i had not, my daughter and i would have been up a creek without a paddle. i wanted the opportunity to give her the life i always wanted. the best way to summarize my feeling towards the upsolve team in a few words would be respect, understanding, and genuine help. the team members held my hand, and walked me through each step of the bankruptcy. they never hesitated to reach out to me, and made sure that i understood what was taking place so that nothing caught me off guard. i could not have made it through this process without them! despite the negative stigma surrounding filing for bankruptcy, it was the best decision i ever could have made. my credit score is up by over 250 points, i have a qualified and received more approvals than when i was freshly 18 years of age, and i can walk around with my head held high knowing that i am no longer a slave to debt! it is just relieving not to have bill collectors calling day and night hassling me anymore.
Arielle L. May. 29, 2019
After graduating college i couldn't find a full-time job with a great salary. i worked several part-time jobs, but the amount of money i was making didn't cover the cost of living in new york and paying back my student loans. to make up for the lack of income, i used my credit cards and personal loans for living expenses. after a while, my debt increased and i didn't have enough funds to keep up with the payments. i wanted to pay off all of my debts myself, but i just didn't make enough money to pay them off in less than 10 years. my roommate suggested that i file for bankruptcy and gave me a bankruptcy e-book she wrote, which explained the process and provided reasons why someone should file. i decided that filing for bankruptcy would be the best option for me at the time. i knew that it would give me the chance to start over, to learn from my mistakes, and start becoming financially literate. i loved that the process was easy and simple. filing for bankruptcy seemed like one of the scariest things to do in life, but upsolve made the whole process not so intimidating. there was always someone available to answer my questions every step of the way. and it’s free! i now have the freedom to make wiser financial choices. i am free to choose where my money goes and not have to spend it on a credit or loan payment. i have learned from my mistakes and will be a better person because of it. i now have the freedom to make wiser financial choices. i am free to choose where my money goes and not have to spend it on a credit or loan payment. i have learned from my mistakes and will be a better person because of it.
Kathleen F. May. 28, 2019
I had medical/dental debt from health issues and had several layoffs where i was unemployed and not enough unemployment insurance to file a claim so a lot of borrowing was done at that time. this was accumulated over 15 years and could not pay it down enough to make a difference. i would recommend if someone needs to get out from any major debt burden of 20k or more to consider bankruptcy. so after understanding that upsolve handles the paperwork and it is the court standard for my living area that i could handle the 341 meeting myself, i went ahead and started the upsolve process. it was straight forward and i could contact upsolve when i ran into issues on the online app. it was also through and the videos helped a lot to prepare me for the 341 meeting. being on the other side of this now i can say that there is hardly any financial stress in my life. the money i make now i can use to put into savings, to take the vacations i much needed, and to help friends. it will allow me to rebuild my credit as needed. living on a cash basis is helpful in not going into debt again. i like this model as you can only spend what you have in your wallet!
Andrea C. May. 28, 2019
After my first divorce i began to accumulate my debt. as a single mom of 2 i ended up taking out more cards to try to make ends meet. i was able to stay afloat with my debt till my second marriage. my husband was without work for a few years and whatever side jobs he did weren't enough to make ends meet. after i got pregnant, i had to stop working and we had twins in 2016. i went back to work may 2017 so i could bring home a steady check. i would get payday loans then another loan to pay that one and it just went downhill from there. i did a lot of research about the pros and cons of bankruptcy. after reading so many articles i felt more at ease about my decision to file. i can understand how it can be an overwhelming and frightening choice to make especially of you have a home and vehicle. in my case i didn't have either. yes it will be on your credit report for 10 years but i was done throwing away money to try to pay everything off. i wish i would have found upsolve sooner. lawyers charged so much money to file and i couldn’t find anyone who would do pro bono. upsolve made it so easy to file on my own. they made answering the questions on the forms so easy. they tell you how to do everything, provide all the courses. i look forward to my clean slate. i'm excited to start up an actual savings in which i have never been able to do. i'd rather have my peace of mind then anxiety and stress of trying to figure out if i'm going to pay everything off.
Kimberly S. May. 26, 2019
I already had quite a few credit card bills but was managing them through a debt management program. i was scammed by someone on craigslist toward the end of last year. i lost several thousand dollars on the home i had secured. i had to move seven days after i moved in. this caused me to have to quit my job without notice and move to another city. from that point, i was unemployed for almost 3 months. by the time i secured a new job, i had fallen behind on all my bills. because i am on disability, i couldn't afford to maintain the debt management program. this is why i decided to file chapter 7. if you have no other means of paying your debt, i would recommend this. i liked using upsolve because i didn't have to pay close to $2000 in attorney fees. it was easy but time-consuming to complete all the information. once it was submitted, i believe i received my packet within a week. it included everything i needed and i was able to file within one month. it took a while to save $335 to file the case. i know it will help me because i won't have all that credit card debt, which will allow me to pay my usual bills (car, insurance, groceries, etc). eventually, my credit rating will go up again.

My name is alisa and i had to file for bankruptcy because i had got a lien against me that really didn’t have nothing to do with me. it had something to do with my ex. and when we broke up it was on my credit report. if i didn’t do anything about it they would start garnishing my paycheck. i have a very very fresh start. the only debt i’ve got is my student loans but those are my responsibility. but otherwise everything was completely wiped out. so that freed me up to start with my student loans.
Teresa M. May. 18, 2019
I fell into debt soon after graduating from college. i had absolutely no savings to “begin my life” and very little experience managing my finances. when i encountered opportunities to further my education, such as yoga teacher training, i charged them on my credit card. it was my original intention to pay off my credit card quickly, but before i knew it ... i had accumulated more than $10,000 in debt. most of these expenses were investments for my educational training and related expenses in attempting to start my own business. i remember the day i decided to file. i was driving home in my beat up car, wondering how long i would continue to pay $200-$300/month for credit card bills. i just couldn’t do it anymore. that evening, i researched bankruptcy online and stumbled upon upsolve. i could hardly believe that there was a straightforward solution. my main fear in filing was in what others - family, partner, and clients - would think of me. however, i couldn’t let that fear stop me, though, because filing bankruptcy is something i had to do for myself. my advice is to release all of the social pressure and external judgement, and do what’s best for you! i am so grateful for upsolve because the process was simple. in my mind i had imagined bankruptcy to be a complex ordeal where you need a lawyer, but i was so wrong. using the upsolve platform everything went smoothly - from gathering necessary documents, watching the online financial management courses, and preparing for my case. on the day of my meeting at the court, i wasn’t even nervous. almost everybody else was there with a lawyer, but i went in confidant alone ... knowing that the documents i had prepared were enough. it was truly an empowering process. bankruptcy has offered me a completely clean state to truly begin building my life from the ground up. whereas before every month i felt tremendous anxiety to pay my bills, i am thinking about life more creatively and optimistically. i’m no longer using credit cards to pay my bills, and feel so much more calm and grounded taking financial and life decisions one step at a time. everything in my life has improved. gone are the credit cards, the cheap apartments, the perpetual fear. i’m finally living a life that i’m proud of.
Parker C. May. 17, 2019
I was married and got a divorce. my ex-wife was suppose to pay her half of the debt, but she refused. to top this off, i met a woman who had 3 children, fell in love, and accrued more debt in order to setup a home for us and "our" children. during this time, we got married and her ex-husband continued to battle her for custody. we spent every last penny we had on attorney's fees. although in the end, we came out on top, this accrued a lot of debt for us. i also have almost $600/mo to repay in student loans, which puts me right at the edge of my debt. filing for bankruptcy was very scary. there is a lot of information online and it was very stressful worrying about how to pay a bankruptcy lawyer when we already were in so much debt and didn't have any extra to begin with. after looking at the alternative options, bankruptcy was the best option. upsolve was amazing! it helped with all the paperwork and was very straight forward. in the end, i needed to make some amendments an upsolve was easy to work with and helped us get those right away. the judge actually commended me for doing the paperwork on my own and how well organized it was. i did not use a lawyer in the end and filed pro-se, which i could not have done without the help of upsolve. bankruptcy has changed my life positively. i am no longer hiding from phone calls and afraid to answer the door. i am able to budget adequately each month and provide for my wife and kids to the best of my ability. we are getting back on track and building our credit back up. we hope to purchase our first home within the next couple of years.

A combination of medical bills, job loss, and living beyond my means, created a financial situation that was untenable. chapter 7 seemed like the only solution when i had no income (jobs have been rare, given my age and specific expertise). i reduced my expenses—living with friends, finding odd jobs, until i could get back on my feet, but bill collectors kept calling and the anxiety would keep me up at night. my bank account was dwindling quickly, and i avoided even checking my balances knowing i could not satisfy my bills. i was scared, anxiety-ridden, and fearful of my future. at first, like most people, i shuddered at the idea of bankruptcy. i thought i would not just ruin my credit, but also ruin my life, my career, my housing prospects. i went through the usual denial and fear about what others might think, of how terrible i felt about myself. but when i ran the numbers, i realized there was no way to satisfy my creditors. reality settled in. since no great job (nor the lottery) was on the horizon, i concluded that things were only going to get worse. i started searching for solutions on the internet and it seemed like bankruptcy would give me a chance to reboot my financial life. although its effect would tarnish my credit report for many years, i read stories of so many others like me, who, by slowly building credit, making sound economic choices, and staying within a budget, managed to come out of the shadow of chapter 7 to get house loans, car loans, etc. as i sought attorneys, i realized quickly that i would be unable to pay for attorney fees. upsolve’s free program (though you have to pay for two federally-mandated, inexpensive financial management courses) took away that barrier, as well as my fear, and prompted me to make the choice to file chapter 7. as an aside, and piece of advice: i thought about selling my car privately, but i chose not to primarily because i owed more than it was worth and didn’t have enough cash to make up the difference, and didn’t need it in the city. because i had no income, i did not reaffirm my car loan when i filed chapter 7. a few weeks after filing, i called the lien holder (a national bank) to tell them i would like to surrender the vehicle. they mailed a simple form for me to sign, we made arrangements for the pick up, i left the keys in the car, and it was gone. it did take a few calls, because they seemed reticent to do so. but i’m glad i did. i liked the series of wizards and frequent prompts helped enormously with filing. the checklist was incredibly helpful. the relief of no longer getting constant phone calls or emails from creditors right after filing eased my anxiety considerably. i adopted a cash-only form of lifestyle, where i now use the 50-30-20 budget system: 50% of income goes to needs, 30% goes to wants, and 20% goes to savings. when my debts were discharged and i received the official letter, i had a brighter outlook for my future. i am very careful about my financial life now, paying more attention to what i spend, how i spend it, and how i earn it. i no longer avoid checking my balances because i want to know where i stand financially every day. i’m excited about my future, as i hope to build wealth into my retirement, no longer being saddled with crippling debt.
Mary J. May. 9, 2019
If anything, i should be thanking you for your diligence. thank you for keeping in touch with me; i’m sure that, as a nonprofit, staying in contact with everyone you try to help is extremely challenging, so i appreciate you going the extra mile. i appreciate your hard work!
William D. May. 9, 2019
I wanted to thank you all personally, for all the assistance that i have received during my bankruptcy, i could not have effectively and efficiently handled the pro se chapter 7 myself. when i had my 341 meeting, the trustee was very impressed with my binder (containing all the forms, schedules, and lists in order) with sheet protectors, flags, and highlights. and asked about upsolve.org, which i let her read the letters you had supplied to me, and she appeared impressed with your organization, as well. she stated that i was the second upsolve pro se case of the day at the pikeville office, of the eastern district of ky bankruptcy court. the other lawyer, even stated that i maybe one of the few that could successfully pro se their case. i stated “upsolve was a very big help, with the questionnaires and pdf forms and q&a email.” thank you very much, again. i had gotten my fees waived, and my full federal tax return, to help with bills, and car repairs. but i should be able to donate to you shortly, to be able to help another person in distress like myself. also my fico score has climbed from 481 to 567 since my filing 1 1/2 months ago. you can use all, or any part of this as a testimony for your business.
Amanda S. May. 8, 2019
Hi! there upsolve team, my name is amanda. first i would like to say thank you!!! to everyone for all the help that i have received along the way to complete my bankruptcy.
Larry I. May. 7, 2019
Hello upsolve team: the forms are great! i have printed two copies at office depot, signed them, and getting ready to file by next week. as a former certified legal assistant, i found the forms amazingly well done, and i thank you! i have a legal aid attorney that i have suggested to her that she should divert some low income clients to your website, to help everyone out!
Cynthia U. May. 7, 2019
Best decision i ever made to progress! helped by the best…upsolve!!! thanks so much
Cere C. May. 7, 2019
I was able to file bankruptcy correctly the first time. it was so easy and helpful that i didn’t feel overwhelmed and i didn’t feel embarrassed. every step of the way there is somebody there answering your questions and explaining things. then they reached out to me directly to answer any questions that they may have over the information given. filling out the paperwork was no different than filling out a job application. the woman at the clerk’s office said i was the third person to come in that had used upsolve.org and she wish they could do everyone who files by themselves’s paperwork cause it is so thorough.
Trevor S. May. 6, 2019
I had recurring monthly payments to credit cards that piled and it grew into a pile of debt that i struggled to pay off. my advice would be to think of bankruptcy thoroughly as it's the best way which is to get you out of debt and bring relief back to your life. they are honest and upfront with the way they volunteer to help others going through bankruptcy. i trusted upsolve completely when it comes to helping me with my bankruptcy case. i learned a lot with the completion of my bankruptcy. it has helped me greatly in the way that i handle financial planning and saving.
Preston Q. May. 6, 2019
Thank you for all your assistance in getting through the bk process. i couldn’t have done it without your help.
Lulu N. May. 6, 2019
My most sincere thanks. i appreciate the personal communication as this is a very stress process. and i’m trying to work, stop the pending civil suit that could result in garnishment and complete all to file. i feel not so alone. thank you.
Christy L. May. 6, 2019
I really want to reiterate my gratitude because filing pro se, literally barely able to afford the $10 for the first required credit course, and having the software see that i may qualify for the court fees of $335 to be waived, was such help for me. even though you didn’t offer me legal advice, you offered me support and direction in order that i could make informed decisions. i had spent two weeks in research and unsuccessful attempts at trying to complete all the papers and do the numbers on my own. i could not get to completion w/o having several “do-overs”. that’s when i googled “free chapter 7 software” and was led to an article about upsolve.
Ismael S. May. 5, 2019
I fell into debt from a combination of health issues and bad budgeting, and many bad financial choices that i hope to never make again. a friend of mine had helped me overcome the fear of bankruptcy by informing me that the repercussions were not as large as fear had led me to believe, and also emphasizing how it is meant for people with a low come situation like mine, although he left out that i needed to save for a lawyer which with the pending judgments had drained whatever fight i had left from me. extremely user friendly! along with the real people that help individuals where beyond helpful and professional. it has given me financial stability in a situation where it is taking everything i have to keep my mobile home together and my relationship, as well as letting me begin to strive towards one day owning land.
Shyra J. May. 5, 2019
In 2013, my aunt got sick, so i moved to georgia to take care of her. i had just gotten laid off from my job, so i was excited for a fresh start. before i left, i cleaned up my credit. i wrote dispute letters, paid out some old bills, and made arrangements for my student loans. my credit score was pretty good; i think it was 650. so i bought a car and drove to georgia with my sons. i heard the rent there was cheap, but i didn’t realize i would be making much less money than i made in california. my first job there was working the night shift at a group home. i only made $8 an hour. suddenly i was falling behind on paying my credit card bills, and i had to turn my car over for voluntary repossession. i got another car from a buy here pay here lot. i could afford it, but there were all of these issues with the engine, and they wouldn’t let me trade it in. i gave up the car and paid cash for another one. on top of that, i had to buy all of this new furniture because i sold everything before i moved. my credit took a huge, unexpected dive in georgia. it was devastating. i went there to get a fresh start, and instead i fell into a financial hole that i couldn’t find a way out of. i was nervous to file for bankruptcy without an attorney handling the paperwork, but the staff at upsolve walked me through step-by-step and answered all of my questions. it was an easy and pleasant process! i want to purchase a home now that we’re back in california. my husband and i have great jobs and my kids are getting older. i’ve been speaking to some mortgage loan officers and they tell me that i’m not out of the ballpark, so i’m hopeful!
Lisa T. May. 4, 2019
Hi upsolve team. i wanted to let you know that i successfully had my 341 meeting today!!! also happens to be my birthday!!! i would love to thank you! for your kindness and care, your time, your generosity, your inspiration, encouragement, and goodness. what you provide is an amazing, unique, and love based resource. i am blessed! thank you and many blessings back to all of you there!
John D. May. 3, 2019
First, i would like to thank you for co-founding upsolve to help low-income people access the fresh-start a bankruptcy can help provide to the problem of overwhelming debt. a friend of mine committed suicide about 20 years ago. everyone who knew her was stunned. one of the pieces of information that emerged after her death was that this bright, beautiful, healthy young woman was deeply in debt. we will never know for sure if that contributed to her decision to end her life, but my guess is that it probably played a part. so my thought is that what you and those who work with you are doing is not only helping the poor access bankruptcy, but you may be saving lives, too.
Amy C. May. 3, 2019
I received word of my discharge about a week ago, and want to thank you and your team for having the ingenuity and tenacity to build such an incredible tool. upsolve made the process really, really simple! obviously, nobody feels great about finding themselves in the position to need to declare bankruptcy, but it was unexpectedly empowering to be able to file pro se and have the process move so smoothly. you guys are providing an incredible service that levels the playing field, making the process accessible to everybody. thank you again!
Amanda S. May. 2, 2019
Thank you very much for getting back to me so quickly. also, i wanted to thank the team for helping me out with this crappy situation. trying to get back on my feet again and when i get there i will definitely send a thank you donation.
Lisa M. May. 1, 2019
Medical bills, divorce, maxing out credit cards. definitely file, use upsolve if you want it to actually go through. the only fear i had was of filing myself as i didn’t have money for attorney. i researched a lot before i found upsolve. it was like discovering a cure for cancer. i decided to file bankruptcy because i was overwhelmed with bills and threats. i like most that it’s free and yet very knowledgeable. it stopped all collection threats, gave me a new beginning.
Angie F. May. 1, 2019
I just found out, that my bankruptcy had been fully discharged, as of this morning. upsolve, thank you, for making this such and east, seamless process!!!
Sophie N. Apr. 30, 2019
I fell into debt because of an abusive relationship. i married a man with addiction issues and he would steal my credit cards, saying “what’s yours is mine”. he manipulated me into getting him a loan in my name for a vehicle that he destroyed. even after i had filed for divorce, the irs still took all of my tax refund for his debts. after the divorce, it was exhausting to keep up with payments as a single mom, so i just gave up and let everything get really delinquent, with judgements and all. i advise anyone who has more debt than they can afford to consider bankruptcy! for my circumstances, having accumulated a lot of someone else’s debt due to an abusive marriage, i not only couldn’t afford the monthly payments, but it felt wrong to pay off debt from a part of my life i wanted to leave behind. bankruptcy has given me a clean slate and a fresh start. people would try to scare me off from doing it saying i wouldn’t have credit for 7 years, but that’s a myth! i now have my first bank account in years and a credit card, and i went bankrupt less than 4 months ago! it’s not as scary as you think! upsolve was so wonderful! when i first decided bankruptcy was a good idea, as suggested by a financial counselor, everyone i told about my idea said it would be expensive and not worth the hassle. well i’m glad i didn’t listen, because i found upsolve and was able to do the entire process by myself for free. it was easy and a smooth process for me. i did most of it from my phone and went to the library when i needed to print. when i had questions, upsolve would email me back in a matter of minutes or hours. they were there with me every step of the way and we’re so nice and helpful. it was great and i am so so thankful! bankruptcy has helped me leave behind a really hard time in my life for good. because of upsolve, i don’t have to look back. i also finished bankruptcy less than 4 months ago and i already have a credit card that i am using responsibly and making payments on time to start building my credit again! bankruptcy has helped me leave behind a really hard time in my life for good. because of upsolve, i don’t have to look back. i also finished bankruptcy less than 4 months ago and i already have a credit card that i am using responsibly and making payments on time to start building my credit again!
Sylvester D. Apr. 30, 2019
I am thankful to your fine company for seeing me along. your positive support helps. a lot.
Kyle T. Apr. 30, 2019
Start to finish: 91 days. (5 days w/upsolve, 86 days in the court system). the website is very straight forward. the email follow-ups were clear and timely. free service with a+ service level. entirely happy and ~$96k less worry
Christopher D. Apr. 30, 2019
Awesome! if you’re not the best, then i don’t know who is. thank you, very much!
Carrie B. Apr. 29, 2019
I lost my full time job in 2013, and fell into a deep depression. i was unable to maintain constant employment and over-extended myself using credit cards to survive. i fell into debt after being unable to pay credit cards and also incurring large medical bills. i received threatening calls from debt collectors which pushed me further into depression. i became unable to recover and dig my way out. i definitely recommend contacting upsolve. i thought it would be too difficult or my creditors would prevent me from filing. i didn't think i could get the help i desperately needed. i decided to file because i found out i was pregnant. i knew i couldn't bring a child into this world with the debt hanging over my head. i knew it was time to take action and take back my life. i loved how easy and streamlined the process was. there was no guessing involved. from step 1 all the way through my 341 meeting i felt like upsolve was there to guide me. links to the credit courses were provided; assistance in filling out paperwork was provided by upsolve taking the initiative to add "sign on next page" sheets; i was told what to do and how to complete each step and honestly felt like i mattered to upsolve. the biggest change has been my attitude towards life. i am no longer in fear of debt collectors and feel like i have a fresh start. i am hoping to rebuild my credit, so i know i am on the right path to provide the best life i can for my child.
Darin J. Apr. 28, 2019
A combination of life events led me into financial straits. an excellent credit rating earned through many years of responsible borrowing had enabled me to stay abreast of my business debts for many years. when business slowed in 2009, i was able to stay afloat by juggling balances and taking advantage of zero-percent interest rates, hoping that things would eventually turn around. but divorce, a loss of business clients due to the global economic crisis, and finally a major medical emergency all combined to make keeping up with debt payments impossible. the last of my savings was drained servicing my revolving debt, and i found i could no longer tread water. after bottoming out financially, the inevitable feelings of despair and hopelessness are easy to succumb to. but if you can change your mindset and see that life and its possibilities are far greater and infinitely more real than the numbers attached to a personal financial statement, you may see a way out of the darkness. remember that the economy and its rules are man-made, and there is a way to hit reset and carry on with your life. choosing to see bankruptcy as merely a move in a game can help you make the decision to file. credit can be rebuilt and material goods replaced (or not!). of all the immutable forces around us – nature, ecology, mortality – the economy and its rules are actually created and upheld by us, the believers. so, don’t be afraid to use bankruptcy as a lifeline; that is what it is there for. and the peace of mind it can bring is worth more than any amount of illusory money. upsolve is a very special organization. their expertise and compassion made going through the daunting task of filing bankruptcy infinitely easier. when i had questions, they were generous with their time and knowledge to answer, and to assuage my anxieties around the filing process. but perhaps the greatest thing i can say about them comes from my experience meeting with the state-appointed bankruptcy trustee where all of the documentation is presented for review. the trustee - a highly respected member of the san diego business community who has seen thousands of bankruptcy cases come across his desk - took time outside of my hearing to ask who had helped me prepare my case. he was so impressed by the thoroughness and clarity of the paperwork that he asked me to give him the contact information for upsolve so that he could recommend them personally. with the fresh start afforded by filing, i find my mind free to concentrate on the present and to focus on what’s important, today. debt and unmeetable financial obligations are so incredibly crippling that many stagger under the burden and lose sight of what really matters in this fleeting life. now i am able to make decisions without the anxiety and dread of what seemed like a hopeless future of unmanageable debt. liberating the mind from these anxieties has had tremendous benefits to my health, mental focus, and creativity. don’t underestimate the power of de-cluttering your mind and your life; all sorts of possibilities can flourish when you plow the field and allow new seeds to sprout.
Ashley A. Apr. 27, 2019
I opened and used various credit cards while i was in college i was 27 when i went to school and i couldn't find any grants or scholarships for my age group. i had a full time job and going to school full time and couldn't make my school tuition after the first year, it was just way to hard. i kept finding jobs and working at least 2 jobs at a time but the cost of living is so much i couldn't even afford my rent nor the bills. i then became homeless shortly after and have been trying to figure out how to file bankruptcy by myself. my biggest fear was that i was afraid if i filled out the paperwork myself i would mess up. i had all intentions of trying to fill it out page by page myself and research but then i found upsolve. i decided to file because i felt what could be worse? i have already felt so stressed out for many years it could only help. i loved that it was easy to fill in the blanks. once you have all the right documents to enter in, you’re set. this will change my life in the future for sure. i feel able to have that great credit score to get that place to rent. now that i have this under my belt i feel like i can start my life again and my partner won't have to suffer with my poor credit score. thank you upsolve you have changed my life! i think i dropped 5 lbs of stress immediately!!! i can’t wait to give back and get back on track with life!
Kade H. Apr. 23, 2019
I fell into debt in late 2014 as a result of testing and treatment for a chronic neurological condition. as a college student with little money this was a stressful time on top of my shiny new diagnosis. my advice for someone considering bankruptcy is not to hesitate. make an educated decision first and foremost; but once you’ve decided bankruptcy is the right course of action don’t wait on it. you’ll save yourself lots of time, stress, and money. why i went with you guys: because i couldn’t afford the 2k that an attorney would’ve run. by doing it with you guys i was able to save thousands and actually declare bankruptcy. now that i’m mostly debt free; i plan on saving up for my own home and move out from my parent’s home in the next few years. as an early 20s someone, this is a very exciting prospect.
Elizabeth M. Apr. 22, 2019
I was a homemaker/housewife. my husband of 25 years passed away. he had always handled the bills and finances for our household with his retirement pension. he was diagnosed with cancer 5 years before passing. by the time he passed, his cancer treatments had nearly depleted our savings. we also cashed out a large amount of his life insurance to cover cancer medication and his medical bills. as his surviving spouse, we always thought i'd be able to draw his pension, so we didn't worry too much about cashing out the bulk of the life insurance. the pension was more than enough to live on. after he passed, i found out that i couldn't begin to draw his pension until i reached retirement age, 59 1/2 years old. i had nearly 10 years before i reached that age. i was 50 years old with no employment history and minimal employable skills. i had simply taken care of my husband and children for most of my life. after burial expenses i had a small bit of life insurance proceeds left. that got me through the first year or so. then, it began using our credit cards while looking for employment. suddenly, i was diagnosed with severe copd and a sleep disorder. that made it very hard for me to find employment. the credit card balances became overwhelming. i could no longer keep up with the payments. just do it. millions of people file bankruptcy. it's legal & normal. debt can be overwhelming. when i filed, i immediately felt that burden lifted. i was able to finally sleep peacefully without worrying about collection calls or how i was going to make the exorbitant payments. i was simply sick of worrying. my daughter told me about bankruptcy. she explained it calmly & clearly. i didn't know that i had any options, so that was music to my ears. the process was organized into simple, easy-to-understand steps. there were tips, reminders and clear expansions. there was absolutely no guesswork. you answer the questions, fill in the blanks, print, then submit. the optional court alerts were a big help. they kept me on task and reminded of deadlines and court dates. there were also very minimal fees with the court, which made it affordable. bankruptcy lifted an overwhelming burden for me. the process taught me about debt, financial planning, and budgeting. i now have the skills i need to manage my money effectively. thank you upsolve!
Jennifer R. Apr. 22, 2019
I fell into debt because i was laid off. the only advice i can give someone thinking about bankruptcy is that to just do it and you’ll feel 100% better. i liked upsolve because it was extremely easy to use. all i had to do was follow the steps. bankruptcy has changed my life because it has cleared away a lot of debt i no longer bear.
Lyn R. Apr. 17, 2019
What happened in my situation, why i had to file for bankruptcy was i went out on disability. i became sick and could no longer work. i was still getting an income but not nearly as much as i was getting while i was working. i started falling behind on everything. i recommend it especially if you can not take off work or get to a brick-and-mortar lawyer where you have to go and travel there and take off work. my advice is to you, listen, my credit as shot. so i had to realize that i couldn’t save it. that even if i filed bankruptcy it would be the same. my credit would start going up, which it has. i have a bankruptcy on file but i needed a fresh start. so think about it. research it, but i would definitely recommend upsolve. it is a great organization. i was able to pay for the bankruptcy and get it done. they also were super easy to communicate with. it was a very personal experience. i felt like they knew my case. i wasn’t just a number. they knew what was going on.they would even send me updates. they would text me. they would send me a checklist of what i still needed. and i was able to do most of it from my cell phone. it was very user friendly and very easy. i just thought it was such a great idea and i am so happy i used upsolve. my life has really gotten so much less stressful. i’ve been able to increase my credit score. every month it goes up. i’ve been able to get a couple of credit cards with small credit limits. that’s fine though. i didn’t want a big credit card. i wanted to stay with a small credit card just in case i needed it for an emergency. and i charge something once a month and i pay it. and my credit score has just been going up because of that. so my experience was great. my life has really gotten so much less stressful. i’ve been able to increase my credit score. every month it goes up. i’ve been able to get a couple of credit cards with small credit limits. that’s fine though. i didn’t want a big credit card. i wanted to stay with a small credit card just in case i needed it for an emergency. and i charge something once a month and i pay it. and my credit score has just been going up because of that. so my experience was great.
Latash K. Apr. 16, 2019
I got into debt by taking out payday loans and credits to survive while putting myself through college. and medical bills. advice is to really make sure it’s what you need for a fresh start. i was so scared because i wasn’t sure what would happen. i didn’t want my score to go down but i knew it would help. i overcame my fear because i knew that i wanted a fresh start and upsolve would provide me with the tools i needed to have a fresh start. i liked all the tools that were offered and the constant communication. my life has changed so much. i know more about credit in general. i am working on buying my first home.

I fell into debt because of a combination of things, i got into a car accident while i was at home recovering my employer decided to let me go. i had a very difficult time with both workers comp which both were denied because of my paper work getting lost so they said. anyways my health deteriorated i was living on my credit cards big big mistake that house of cards collapsed quickly. i also took out payday loans and those people are ruthless finally i spent a year in a nursing home that's when i decided to file i didn't want to start my life over at 60yrs old with all that debt some of which was clearly my fault. if anyone is struggling as to whether or not to file just do it your health and peace of mind are worth far more than some bills you couldn't pay. once your credit is ruined you are better off going bankrupt than trying to pay all that off it's been less than a year and i already have 2 credit cards both low limits $500 and have bought things on amazon with their 5 installment plan. do not take any of those cards with the $125 anual fee plus $12 monthly service fee never also beware of car dealers trying to sell you overpriced high interest cars. my cards $39 and $59 annual fee and i don't want to get a car but for those that do after talking to many others you can purchase an off lease car at very reasonable rates but you have to take the time to shop around also beware that car dealers pull credit reports without telling you so if you visit 4 in one day they may pull 4 credit reports if you are trying to rebuild your credit that can hurt. i loved using upsolve they were very professional and without them i never would have been able to do it. i was living in the nursing home on $50 per month the state takes all your money plus my bank account was attached so once i got out and started to revive my social security checks they were at risk even though it's illegal for creditors to touch social security they sometimes do it and it takes months to get your money back plus you will not get it all back because if you accumulate more than your exempt from they can take it all. upsolve allowed my to go bankrupt for free they filled out all the paperwork then i printed them went to the courthouse and filed i was able to get the filing fees waived. i would highly recommend them. bankrupt has removed the stress of all debt hanging over my head the phone calls the judgements against me all of it gone it truly is a fresh start.

In 2015, after a few years of joblessness and underemployment, i could no longer pay credit card bills. at the time my credit score was 730. a combination of lay-offs and age discrimination lowered my earning power. the credit cards were being used for dental bills, irs bills as well as necessary clothing, etc. during the 3-4 years of difficulty. i decided to file when i was served papers by a creditor earlier this year, and knew i had no defense. in a panic i googled "low cost bankruptcy attorneys, and bingo! upsolve appeared! the first thing i noticed was the professionalism combined with a low-key approach, in other words, no hype. it felt like the utter grace of god, because paying up to $1500 was not possible for me. i don't have to think about creditors or have the black cloud of debt hanging over me. i've learned how to live without credit cards, with the bonus of keeping my car via family/personal loan at 2.2%.

First i've been a single parent without a support network. i've always worked but it's been hard having children with illnesses that required me to miss work and often lost a job because of it. if it has come to the point that you are thinking about filing just file. my fear was routed in admitting to myself that i failed yet again. i decided to file because i was being sued by a creditor and a defaulted student loan. i enjoyed the ability to do almost everything online. upsolve held my hand throughout the whole process which gave me comfort. this process gave me the ability to start fresh, with hope and a clean slate to bring my company to life. a support network for other single parents without a village. thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I was forced into bankruptcy after a lay-off that left me homeless. i was bouncing around from couch to couch for over a year, looking for work and doing my best just to survive. it's extremely difficult to find a job and get back on your feet when you don't even know where you're going to be sleeping next week. once i found a stable residence and a source of income, i had to decide what to do about my personal, credit card and vehicle repossession debts. i knew it would take me years and years to pay off which would prevent me from saving for emergencies or getting ahead in any way. it's very important to find a lawyer who you feel comfortable with and confident in, but since i was living paycheck to paycheck, i was not able to access that legal assistance. i was afraid that soon my wages or bank account may be garnished as i already had a judgment against me from a credit card company, but i didn't have a single dollar to spare in my budget to survive. unable to hire a lawyer, and not knowing what to do, i had no idea how i was going to ever get out from under my debts. when i found upsolve, i was astonished by the amount of help, both video and written, that i received in walking me through every step of the bankruptcy process. they were a godsend and a huge support to me, showing me exactly what to do and making certain my documents were prepared accurately. i highly recommend them to anyone! since being discharged, i was surprised at a jump in my credit score -almost 100 points!- and realized that all of the missed payments and negative marks were doing more damage to my credit report than bankruptcy could. this was a huge burden lifted from my shoulders and now i'm able to start saving for an emergency and getting my life back on track. i can't thank upsolve enough!

I was unable to work for about six months after i hurt my back at work. the company i was working for denied all medical claims and this forced me to have to pay for all x-rays, mris, and procedures out of pocket since they did not offer any medical insurance either. the bills just kept mounting with late fees and interest charges. i spent about four years trying to play catch up and realized that i was too deep in the hole and never would. i decided to file when i finally realized that i would never be able to dig myself out of the hole that i was in. aside from the social stigma that is typically attached to bankruptcy, i didn't really have any fears about filing bankruptcy. my advice to someone thinking about bankruptcy would be to seriously evaluate the situation to make sure that this is truly your only option. be honest on your schedules and make sure you include all of your debts to ensure a true "second chance". upsolve was very easy to navigate. i loved that i could log in and out to continue the lengthy process of filling out all of the required paperwork. i only had to make some minor adjustments to my paperwork prior to filing. upsolve really streamlined and simplified this process which i thought was going to take weeks! i actually finished in about two days. bankruptcy has alleviated all of the extra stress that i was under while i was so deep in debt. it has allowed me to rebuild and re-establish myself.

I started when i first went to college out of high school and i wasn't prepared for what credit was and how to maintain it. over time, i got car loans and was able to handle but certain circumstances kept me from being able to pay and there were some repossessions. my debt increased and finally i just wasn't able to make a dent in eliminating any of it. check all your options prior. but, when you have made the decision to, you have to look at it as your credit isn't changing with the current status of your credit but with bankruptcy, there's a sense of a fresh start. i ended up filing because i was given a summons to pay for an old car loan and there was no way i could afford to pay that and my current bills. i had to do something to stop this and already had planned to file some years prior. just could never afford to. there was no judgement and i was provided with so much assistance. any questions, someone was there to answer. i love that they pretty much did the grueling part of preparing the documents. it has changed tremendously. i've been able to rebuild my credit and have since obtained a higher score.

I was laid off my job in 2012 after 12 years and it was a bit of a specialized position. i didn’t work for over a year and half after; i’ve had two jobs since, neither of that worked out but regardless will never make the same money again (barely half as much). unfortunately still had the same debt though- parent plus loan, credit debt which was increased by lay off. currently haven’t worked in over year and half and at this point can’t. figure out if there is some other course of action you can take to relieve your financial issues. you have to also look at how it came to be and stop any activities that are not necessary. fear did stop me for quite a while, along with guilt about it. i’ve had credit since 17 (40 yrs) without a mark on it but it became inevitable. i had to give up my place to be able to pay my bills and still have enough left over to live at all. if i hadn’t accidentally found upsolve i still wouldn’t have been able to file, i would have had to just deal with consequences of not paying them (no income). i happen to be in seattle with daughter and checked out wa gov websites and found info about them. i live in ct and have tried to get assistance there in past.....upsolve doesn’t seem to be known there. i like that there are lawyers, paralegals, etc. out there that are willing to devote their time to helping people stuck in my type of situation, that can’t afford to file bankruptcy (seems like an oxymoron, huh?). i am filled with extreme gratitude for everyone there!! i cannot believe how simple they make it for you also; my mind was blown. i lived with the stress about it for so long and really thought it’d be stressful doing it pro se but i was stunned that i didn’t suffer stress from it. it has made it so that i can focus on taking care of myself right now which is much needed. i still have to deal with the ffel loan i have but things will all work out. it has made it so that i can focus on taking care of myself right now which is much needed. i still have to deal with the ffel loan i have but things will all work out.
Cynthia T. Feb. 22, 2019
Best decision i ever made to progress. helped by the best...upsolve!!! thanks so much
Christine T. Feb. 20, 2019
The trustee made an off-record comment that in many ways, i was as, if not more, prepared than many attorneys who walk through their doors. he did not need any additional information. he said that the resource i found in you served me well.
Larry H. Feb. 19, 2019
As a former certified legal assistant, i found the forms amazingly well done, and i thank you! i know a legal aid attorney, and i have suggested to her that she should divert some low income clients to your website to help everyone out.
Brandi P. Feb. 13, 2019
To anyone in this situation i’d say: “don't be so hard on yourself. you learn through mistakes. do not live beyond your means because that is a guaranteed set-up for failure. but don’t be so hard on yourself if you get i to some kind of trouble with debt because that happens. i don’t think there's one person walking on this earth who hasn't had that experience with owing something and not being sure how you're going to pay for it or you're struggling to pay it. you helped me during a tough time. i couldn't thank you and your team enough.
Kyle S. Dec. 20, 2018
Start to finish: 91 days. (5 days w/upsolve, 86 days in the court system). the website is very straight forward. the email follow-ups were clear and timely. free service with a+ service level. entirely happy and ~$96k less worry. all told, declaring bankruptcy has cleared the way for me to forge a path in the direction of my future instead of continuing to try to limp along with no hope of ever improving my situation. it reinvigorated me and allowed me to dream again.
Amy Hans Dec. 14, 2018
Upsolve is amazing. i never thought it would be possible to file your bankruptcy in such a way. i am so very very grateful for their time and attention to my serious financial woes. they were always on top of things - despite this is all electronic!!! they must be a group of very hard working individuals!!!!

Karren L. Sep. 14, 2018
It's a process. it takes some work to go through this process but once you do it, you don't have to worry about your debt anymore. you can start that part of your life over, and make better decisions. i have had such a positive experience with kristin, john, rohan, and ben to name a few. everyone is so friendly and willing and able to help. without upsolve i would not be on my way to a fresh start of a debt free future ahead!!! thank you so much to all of you!!! may god bless and keep each and every one of you. being debt-free makes me very optimistic because i see the possibility of one day having financial stability. one day maybe getting a decent job, and being able to keep my pay.
Julianne Steele Aug. 29, 2018
The upsolve team has helped me so much during this process. i would recommend them to everyone needing help that just can’t afford a lawyer right now . i pray they are able to continue offering this service for a lifetime to come.

To be honest, i was putting off my bankruptcy for awhile because i didn't have the attorney or application fee to apply. however, when i heard about upsolve bankruptcy through a friend and that it was free, i immediately when online to find out more. it was true it didn't take long to get my application started with the expert team of jonathan & rohan. they help me all the way with my bankruptcy free of charge and now i am happy to say i have no more worry about any debt collector agency. i thank jonathan & rohan for their advise and guidance, and i would recommend upsolve to anyone.

Keri Savoca Jul. 13, 2018
I knew i needed to file chapter 7. i did the paperwork by myself because i couldn't afford attorney fees, but then paused at the last minute and realized i had better have someone look over this. i found upsolve when i searched for pro bono bankruptcy attorneys. their process was simple -- fill out a quick online form, which auto-populates the bankruptcy forms; upload copies of bills and a few other documents; go down to the office to finalize the paperwork; walk a few blocks to drop off the documents at the bankruptcy court. easy and life-changing. i'm glad i had them do my paperwork because there were a few little things that i had missed when i did the forms on my own. bankruptcy is not the end of the world -- if you're too deep into debt and you can't get out, it's often a better solution than doing debt consolidation because you can begin to repair your credit right away instead of 2-3 years from now when you finish paying everything in a debt consolidation plan. i'm looking forward to starting over.
Vanessa McNeil Jun. 23, 2018
Professional, courteous, and educated team of individuals. i was assured that even though it can be nerve wrecking to fine bankruptcy, the end result is literally, a breath of fresh air- a fresh start. i am glad i took this step and had the guidance of educated professionals. thanks upsolve team!!
Betsy O'Brien Jun. 13, 2018
Upsolve is a great program for anyone filing bankruptcy. i never thought it could be so easy. i had pine tree legal and volunteer lawyers project help me through this process. they told me about upsolve online. they said i was the first person in maine to file for bankruptcy through the upsolve program. this program wasn't available in maine until january 2018. i started my first bankruptcy course with upsolve on january 29, 2018. i filed my bankruptcy paperwork with the court on february 16, 2018. i went to bankruptcy court with my volunteer lawyers project lawyer in march 2018. i received my discharge on may 21, 2018. i couldn't thank upsolve enough. they helped me whenever i had a question. it feels great to be debt free. i never thought i would ever have to file bankruptcy, but thanks to upsolve they made it easy. they helped me through a tough time in my life.
Ron Poulin Jun. 9, 2018
Very user friendly. rohan was there to answer all questions immediately. my experience with upsolve was easy to understand and made my bankruptcy less stressful. i thank them for all their help.
Shaemane Davis Jun. 6, 2018
I knew bankruptcy was something i had to do. i was a little unnerved and didn't have the funds to file. after putting it off for as long as i could i contacted upsolve. i followed their instructions with regards to what documentation i had to provide and boom, they took it from there. they were so helpful, so informative and now i am so ready to get my life back. thanks guys
Andrew H. Jun. 5, 2018
Upsolve is great if you need a fresh start . i am very greatfull for all what they did for me. thank you!
Abed M. Apr. 13, 2018
There are some things i’m trying to work on about myself now — my confidence, for one. for so long i stalled and didn’t make strong decisions. but filing for bankruptcy, i want to be more affirmative about decisions like that. i’m so very grateful for this fresh start i’ve gotten from upsolve. i’m happy i made that call. i’m grateful that i still have my ambition. some people, they would rather complain than doing something to change their life. but i did. since i filed for bankruptcy, i’ve started learning about software, i’m trying to develop apps. i have a lot of ideas for the future, but my dream job is to be a project manager, to make something big.
