How Do Divorce And Bankruptcy Work Together?

If you are contemplating divorce, bankruptcy is another legal option that may help you rid yourself of some of the debt acquired during marriage. If you have already filed a divorce action, you may also have questions about whether bankruptcy is a viable option.

At The Law Offices of Brian Schellenberg in Greenwood and Noblesville, we are here to help you make informed decisions about your future if your marriage is ending and you are struggling with debt. We believe in taking a compassionate role when guiding people through this difficult period of their lives and helping them achieve a fresh start.

Helping clients throughout central Indiana, including the Indianapolis area. Call now.

Figuring Out A Sensible Course Of Action During Your Divorce

If you are thinking about filing for divorce, your best option is to contact us without your spouse to speak with us about the bankruptcy process. This can avoid a conflict of interest later. We will speak with you about factors that may play a role in deciding whether bankruptcy is the right choice for you, including whether you have kids, how much money you make, and what assets and debts you have accumulated. We will also help you with issues of estate planning, taxation and real estate.

It is important to note that after a party files for divorce, some debts — child support, alimony and maintenance, for example — are not dischargeable. We can also see if the facts support having both spouses file for bankruptcy before the divorce is final or if it is more advantageous to file for bankruptcy after the divorce becomes final.

Our attorney will carefully assess your situation to see if Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be able to help you. We can help make sure that you are no longer liable for your ex-spouse's credit card debt or an outstanding loan.

We are here to provide legal solutions so that you can move on with your life unburdened by debt and stress. We can also help you learn more about bankruptcy and what other debt relief options may be available to you.
