Bankruptcy. You're broke until you throw in the towel and ruin 7 years of credit history. There is no limitation on how much you can owe.

Well there are certain limitations to the debt. I believe it can not exceed the total amount declared for bankruptcy. Be sure to stay within these codes because the NC is very strict about this.
