Want to know what to do if we can't afford payments on the chapter 13 because our attorney has had to file it twice for us in the past year. He new my husband had lost his job, but yet he didn't seem to do anything for us. So we paid him money up front twice to file both times and then he charged us his fees twice. The fees for filing twice was 1,000.00. The first case we had paid in was about 5,400.00. And now we have paid in the second time so far is 2,300.00. My husband had lost his job a second time, but didn't last but about 3 weeks before he got another one. But in the mean time we are a little behind in our payment and have been told that they are going up. I just think that we can't afford this anymore. Look at all the money we have spent to try to stay in bankruptcy add it up. And don't tell us to find another attorney because we have no more money. What should we do.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
