Helping Clients Pursue Bankruptcy Solutions After Divorce

It is not uncommon for one or both parties to a divorce to file bankruptcy after the divorce takes place. You may have accumulated debt during your divorce, or the increased costs of maintaining separate households — especially when you have children — may be making it impossible for you to keep up with your debts.

Our firm regularly counsels divorced people who are considering bankruptcy, as well as people whose ex-spouses are filing for bankruptcy.

If you are divorced and concerned about bankruptcy, it is important for you to bring your divorce papers to your initial consultation so your lawyer can examine the possible family law consequences of bankruptcy.

In some cases, a divorced person who files for bankruptcy can be found in contempt of the divorce agreement if the bankruptcy is not done right. In other cases, filing for bankruptcy may impact who will have to repay marital debts that were assigned to one party in the divorce settlement.

Keeping an Eye on Debt Consequences of Divorce

As a law firm focused primarily on bankruptcy and family law, we are particularly well-situated to help people who are considering divorce and concerned about the possible bankruptcy consequences. One common situation is that couples believe they cannot afford divorce because they are upside-down on a mortgage or jointly participating in a Chapter 13 wage earner plan.

We can go over your options with you, with the goal of helping you achieve a positive outcome and fair division of debt so you can move on with your life. Contact us to discuss what we can do to help you through the financial aspects of your divorce.
