Trustworthy Guidance When Bankruptcy And Divorce Coincide

Financial problems are one of the leading causes of relational stress and marital breakups. No wonder, then, that bankruptcy and divorce often occur simultaneously. At the Arizona general practice firm of Wilson-Goodman Law Group, PLLC, our goal is to help you through the complexities in both areas of law. Our Queen Creek and Gilbert bankruptcy and divorce attorneys are also highly knowledgeable about how to structure divorce settlements in light of the fact that Arizona is a community property state, and how to better protect you in the event of bankruptcy. We assist clients in the division of both marital assets and debts.

Divorce And Bankruptcy Issues

If you are considering filing for both divorce and bankruptcy, you likely have questions about how the two legal processes work together. We are well-equipped to answer these questions, such as:

  • Which should I file first, divorce or bankruptcy?
  • If I file for divorce, will I be able to take my name off an upside-down home mortgage?
  • After filing for bankruptcy, will I still have to make child support payments?
  • If I’m receiving alimony payments, can my creditors claim that money?
  • If my ex-spouse files for bankruptcy, will it discharge my share of our joint debts, too?
  • If I file for bankruptcy, can my creditors attempt to collect the debts from my ex-spouse?

No two cases are ever identical, so the specific answers will usually depend upon the unique circumstances of your case. Call Wilson-Goodman Law Group, PLLC, to sit down and talk with one of our lawyers about your particular situation.
