Take thigns one step at a time. I think your first priority is/are the kids. Get settled someplace and then deal with the separation. Then deal with the house. Once the dust has settled on these things yuo can worry about your unsecured debts. Until you start working you simply won’t be able to make payments on the debts – that doesn’t make you a bad person. It is just a fact of life.

If you really feel you need to start dealing with everything at once, then the first step is to call a trustee or credit counsellor for more information. Don’t be surprised if they give the same advice I did – deal with one thig at a time and focus on the kids…
