When Bankruptcy And Divorce Intersect

Bankruptcy Before Divorce

At the Law Offices of Kenneth Gallant, I help people file for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Financial problems often lead to the breakup of a marriage, and spouses who are facing divorce are often saddled with overwhelming debt. Filing for bankruptcy before getting divorced can make the divorce process easier and more efficient. Couples are often able to gain a clearer indication of where they stand financially. Bankruptcy can also make property division proceedings decidedly less complex.

Bankruptcy After Divorce

People who have gotten divorced are often under severe financial pressure as one household becomes two. Also, in some cases, one spouse can incur significant debt from the other spouse in the wake of divorce and debt division arrangements. In either case, filing for bankruptcy can help you alleviate those problems as well as other consequences of debt, such as creditor harassment and wage garnishment. If you have gone through a divorce, bankruptcy can offer you the fresh financial start you need.
