Bankruptcy Before Or During Divorce

If debt has built up and you are considering divorce, it may be appropriate to file divorce first. It is important to understand that every case is different, so you should consult a Southaven lawyer for bankruptcy in divorce before making any decisions.

Perhaps you have already begun the divorce process. Some people believe that bankruptcy and divorce cannot occur simultaneously. That is not the case. We can assist with both, or we can work with your family lawyer if the divorce is already in progress.

Bankruptcy After Divorce

Following a divorce, many people face unexpected financial hardships as they adjust to life with a single income. In addition to the marital debt that may have been carried out of the divorce, debt may accumulate in finding a new home, new furniture and more. These debts may be addressed in bankruptcy.

While past-due child support is not dischargeable in bankruptcy and past-due alimony is rarely allowed to be discharged, the discharge of other debts in Chapter 7 may make it easier to get caught up on these. In Chapter 13, these debts may be included in the payment plan. We will review your case and help you determine the best option.
