My question involves personal finance in the State of: California.
My dad was recently killed in a pedestrian accident and the implications of this are terrible, both emotionally and financially.
He was the only source of income for both my mother and I, and sadly he left a lot of debt. My father did have accidental death insurance but the amount is not enough to cover his liabilities. My father was a truck driver and he did pay-off his truck so at the moment my mother and I are considering hiring someone to drive it, but the problem there is that we don't know how well that would pan out. I am also looking for a job so that I can rake in some money for day to day expenses and school, but I know that any job I get will not be able to cover a lot of what we have to pay. Bankruptcy is our final option but I didn't want to speak with a bankruptcy lawyer until I heard from other legal professionals. So if you have any advice I would greatly appreciate it and thank you in advance for taking the time to read my thread.
