His wardrobe’s here, his stuff is here… his car’s here. And his life is here. He shut off the credit cards.

“I’m lost. I’m completely lost, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to think. It’s a bad dream. Just a really, really bad dream. I’m trying to get, you know, to speak to an attorney and just so what happens next.”

James and his debts

Noella tells her friend Shannon about the financial downfall of her husband, James. She says:

“He made an error and he needs to repair it.

“But I never thought that this would be the end of a marriage. You know, I never thought that that would mean that I’m a single mom with our son.

“I just want my husband to come and tell me what the hell is going on? Like my son was just diagnosed with Autism in May. My mom was hospitalized in June.”
