No, debt settlement can be a viable alternative to bankruptcy that does not require a court filing. Of course, just about anything a debt settlement company can do for you, you can do for yourself by calling the bank directly. But with $15,000 in debt like the original poster has, I would agree with the previous help. Make a tight budget, watch the money spent, pay it off by paying two or three times the minimum payment every month if possible, then don't use cards anymore.
