Hi Rene,
Financial struggles can be one of the hardest struggles to get your head around, especially if you haven't received good financial advice.
Can I suggest you pop over to a financial councillor and seek some guidance.
There are several free services 'in the book' or on the internet.
I have no affiliation with any of them, but the first one that comes to mind is LifeLine. I don't know if they are good or not, but can only imagine they'd be trying to offer a very valuable service to those that can't afford a paid financial advisor.
Chat to them, listen to their advice and then, if it sounds reasonable given your personal circumstances, make a educated and values based decision.
Sometimes bankruptcy is the right decision, and sometimes it is not. I have been bankrupt personally many years due to a business partner helping himself to all my money, it's not a thought I liked to entertain, but once I'd made the decision, I felt a sense of relief.
You need to make sure that you understand how it will impact your situation, and that's why you need to seek professional advice.

Good luck Rene, I hope you find the direction you're looking for.
