Divorce And Bankruptcy Often Go Hand In Hand

You are here:

Divorce is financially traumatic. Even before a divorce, many couples have amassed a substantial amount of debt. In fact, financial problems are a leading cause of divorce. Then the divorce itself is expensive, taking a large amount out of each of the spouse’s incomes.

To make matters more complicated, the household is split, and each spouse is forced to find a way to make a single income cover costs that had previously been covered by two incomes. Not surprisingly, bankruptcy is not uncommon during or after a divorce.

If You Are Considering Divorce And You Also Need Debt Relief

If you are considering divorce and also know that your debt problem is out of control, it is in your best interest to choose an attorney skilled at handling both family law and bankruptcy. If you try to proceed with your divorce with the help of an attorney who practices solely in family law with the intention of addressing the debt problem later, you may miss opportunities that would have proved beneficial. The division of debt may not be handled properly. Time-sensitive matters may be overlooked.
