Tammy,

Unfortunately it's a misconception that as long as you pay something they can't sue you. The truth is $5 - $50 a month isn't going to get this debt even close to being paid off. (They are probably adding interest each month so your balance may go up even with these payments.)

It sounds like you're really struggling financially. Our best suggestion would be for you to get a a free initial evaluation with a bankruptcy attorney so you can find out what your rights and options are here.
