Please take your time to carefully read our rules, before you start to participate in the community.

Things you agree to do:
BKFORUM.com (BKF) users agree to use the search function before starting a new thread. This prevents duplicate discussions and allows for better organized topics.

All BKF users agree to read the sticky posts which may be available at the top of a forum page. These Sticky posts often contain valuable information. They may also outline more rules and guidelines specific for that particular forum, stickies are put in place by that forums moderator(s) or admin(s).

Things you agree not to do:

All BKF users agree not to call people names or write a post simply to make a personal attack, or get a negative reaction; this behavior is not allowed on our forum. The use of derogatory language aimed at anyone will be severely dealt with. There is no need to agree with each other, or to even like each other. However, by signing onto BKForum.com you agree to treat each member and guest with the respect they deserve. No threats or personal attacks will be allowed.

All BKF users agree not to discuss, engage, or encourage any behavior or activity which violates the law. Discussion of drugs, violence, murder, theft, vandalism, fraud or any other issue which could be used to help individuals break the law is strictly forbidden.

All BKF users agree not to "bump" old threads, unless there is a specific benefit to the community by doing so. But in most cases, please don't post in very old threads, instead start new threads.

All BKF users agree not to attempt/use another members account. It is against BKF rules to use any account other than your own. Impersonating another member will result in an immediate ban. It is also against the rules to open more than one account in your own name without permission from a moderator or administrator. If you have been banned for any reason, it is against the rules to open another account. If you were banned temporarily and you are caught using another account you will be banned permanently. Choosing a moniker which is similar in either sound or spelling as a moderator or administrator is strictly forbidden.

Please help us improve the quality of our forum by making sure that your posts are well-worded, spell checked, grammatically correct and syntaxed.

Regarding actions of moderators and administrators:

The forum is no place to air out your opinion or be judgmental of our staff and its capabilities.

All BKF users agree not to abuse or mistreat moderators or administrators. It is against BKF rules to post any information regarding bans or any other action taken by a member of the moderating or administrative team. If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.


Should you find a thread offensive or out of line, then notify a Mod in a PM so they can evaluate the situation and do the action deemed necessary.

All moderators do have active "other" lives outside of the forum and help moderate this forum in their spare time throughout the days and weeks.

If you have a problem with a member or Mod follow the proper channels of reporting it.

Any bashing of moderators or administrators, or any of their discussion or actions will also be deleted, and the responsible posting party(s) will be banned. Any public anti-BKF advertising, communication, or posts on another forum will result in permanent bans as well.

All warnings and bans are decided by individual moderators and administrators. Warnings are preferable to bans however, for serious offenses and repeat abusers bans will go into effect. The length of the bans can vary from several hours to permanent.

    Hi Sophieannne, I am not sure how I am doing! I don't think well! I don't have anything saved and I have lots on my plate! Time seems to be dragging but it doesn't help that I can't take my eyes off the calendar! But I keep plugging along. With fingers crossed and try to make it ok! Xoxo

        Hi DMC...

        That is a more postive note However, it should be, WOW..2 years are already gone. Have you thought about breaking the time into 6 month intervals...that way you reach a goal and then the final goal is even less?
        I know the time feels slow but look at how fast the rest of life is going. It's tough, but look what we've accomplished in the last 2 years..our bills our paid, we're not accumulating debt...sometimes things are hard financially but somehow we always make it work. If anything I think this experience will honestly make us stronger people...when the time comes, we'll be gliding down a smooth street without the horrible debt that got us where we are now. I feel it's hard too, but honestly I feel i'm in such a better place right now. One day at a time!!!

          Thank you Sophieanne! So true! One day at a time and just the other day I had that exact thought... I am no deeper in debt and if I didn't file I bet I would have been! I was spinning my wheels for so long! I think once I reach the half way point I might celebrate that even more. I am happy, believe me but its a long process for sure! Whew!!!! Xoxo

            I'm in the 2017 club, May to be exact (as far as I can recall). So far my plan has been manageable and haven't gone hungry yet. Although I have a very lenient judge and trustee who allowed me a low C13 payment so that I could save for a nest egg.

                        My 5yrs was up last month. Its a great feeling to know I completed it. Anxious to see how long till discharge . I check pacer & NDC ever day for updates. I get paid next week so hopefully the wage attachment has ended. Creditors have all been paid. Got notice that I have to start paying my mortgage & HELOC myself next month. I have about $2500 extra sitting in my account & hoping I will get that back to add a chunk of change to my savings account.
                        Now I need to find a Credit Card Anonymous meeting to attend every week. ha.ha... I truly believe I have learned my lesson about the snow ball effect of using credit and I have been given a chance for a new start with a clean slate. Looking forward to the next chapter of my life debt free...
