Divorce And Bankruptcy In California
Since one of the leading causes of divorce is financial problems, it is no wonder that bankruptcy and divorce often go hand in hand. If you are struggling with debt before, after or during a divorce, it is important to consult with an attorney who knows how these two areas of law intersect.
At the Law Office of Alec Harshey, we have represented numerous people who face debt problems and divorce. Our lawyers can guide you through all aspects of the bankruptcy process, helping you achieve your debt relief goals so you can look forward to a financially stable, post-divorce future.
Bankruptcy Before Or After Divorce?
When it comes to bankruptcy and divorce, timing is very important. For many divorcing couples, it is advantageous to file for bankruptcy before getting divorced. One reason is because marital debt can be discharged through bankruptcy prior to divorce, relieving both spouses of the burden. Another advantage to filing before divorce is that married couples can file a joint petition, reducing the bankruptcy fees.
Should you file for bankruptcy before getting divorced? This is a question you should discuss with a bankruptcy attorney as well as your divorce lawyer. At our law firm, we can give you sound advice on bankruptcy and how it will affect you after your divorce.
