I was in such disbelief that I actually cried at having this weight off my shoulders.

During my marriage, my husband had an addiction of sorts and spent all our money before it could even make it to the bank. This and other reasons led to the demise of our marriage and I had no choice but to file for divorce. Thankfully, I was working but he had left us with so much debt that I did not know how I was going to look after myself and our kids essentially on my own. I had to find a new home for us live and pay for the necessities of life while still trying to find money for fuel and daycare just so that I could continue to go to work. My ex didn’t want to settle on anything so we had to go to court. These costs were unimaginable and there was absolutely no way I would be able to pay those bills and still care for my kids. My ex was refusing to work as he didn’t want to pay child support and the creditors were calling me multiple times each day as he wouldn’t answer his phone. To say I was overwhelmed and discouraged was an understatement. Then I found MNP Debt online. I honestly didn’t think they could help me as it felt like no one could. I never would have imagined that I would have to declare bankruptcy and I was embarrassed to ask for help, but it was literally my last resort. The first time I met Wendy was on the phone and instantly I liked her! She was so kind, understanding and non-judgmental. She gave me great advice and took her time to explain the process and reassured me that she was going to be there for me every step of the way. For the first time I felt like there was hope. Once she filed my bankruptcy immediately the creditors stopped calling – I was in such disbelief that I actually cried at having this weight off my shoulders. I had to do some homework along the way but the process was simple and Wendy was there to answer any questions I had. I honestly don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t found MNP Debt and had someone as wonderful as Wendy to guide me though the process. I want to thank Wendy and everyone else at MNP Debt for getting me back on my feet again so that I can focus on my kids instead of my debt – thank you for giving me my life back!
