I currently have 54k in cc debt, 19k in personal unsecured loan, 2 mortgages, 1 car lease. I am having trouble paying for the unsecured debt and BK is not an option as I cannot lose my house (and other mortgage is my moms home that my brother pays for who is also on the mortgage).
The 54k is split between 7 cards. 17k with chase, 12k with unionbank, 7k with amex, 8k with citi, 2k with bofa, and 2k with bestbuy. I have 0 late payments on my account thus far but my credit is taking a big dip because of this. all cards are maxed. I have been trying to secure a loan to pay off everything and have 1 payment but keep getting declined or pre approved for less. I already took the 25k loan from sofi two years ago (not at 19k) but it wasnt enough to pay it all off so got me stuck, i cant do that again.
Do I stop paying all of my unsecured debt?
I wanted to keep paying on the Amex and Citi as 1. Amex i heard never settles, 2. both cards are my travel cards and I would like to keep them in the future.
Will doing a hardship with Amex hurt my credit and also blacklist me from amex?
I know black listing is a possibility, with chase, I also have an autolease with them. Will they black list me on future lease as well? or would it be only for credit cards and unsecured loans? They are the only company to offer a lease for subarus
I have 2 joint checking accounts with my sister and mother. Is there a chance they can withdraw from either of these accounts? the joint with my mother is held at union bank as well where one of my credit cards is.
Also my credit score. Since its taking a dip now, having a lease, keeping the amex and citi in good standing, and the 2 mortgages, will my credit have a chance of bouncing back sooner?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
