Can a married couple file a divorce and a bankruptcy at the same time?

Posted on Monday, January 20th, 2014 at 11:30 pm    

For couples, bankruptcy and divorce sometimes go hand in hand. Both offer a fresh start after other solutions have failed. At Lawrence & Associates, our attorneys can refer you to a Kentucky divorce attorney, and we have an Ohio divorce attorney in house.  A bankruptcy will not affect spousal support or child support, but a jointly planned bankruptcy between divorcing spouses will often be the best way for a couple to resolve joint debts apportioned in the divorce decree. At Lawrence & Associates, our attorneys can advise you on the best order in which to pursue divorce and bankruptcy, as well as whether you and your spouse should file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Not everyone will combine a divorce and a bankruptcy in the same way.
