Divorce & Bankruptcy in Westchester County

Filing For Divorce While Considering Divorce

In today's society, nearly 50% of all first marriages will end in divorce and those statistics are even worse for subsequent marriages. Unfortunately, going through financial stress can put a great strain on a marriage, so it isn't surprising if the couple may be contemplating bankruptcy around the same time they wish to file for divorce.

At the Bronson Law Offices, P.C., we have seen countless couples who were experiencing extreme financial troubles that were coupled with marital conflict. Unfortunately, overwhelming financial stress often times goes hand-in-hand with divorce. If you and your spouse are already heading towards divorce, and if you have a lot of debts, it might make financial sense to file bankruptcy prior to filing for divorce. A Westchester County bankruptcy lawyer from our firm can help explain the benefits of filing for bankruptcy before beginning your divorce proceedings.

Bankruptcy Lawyer Serving Westchester County

Even if you and your spouse are splitting up and aren't living together, as a married couple, you can still file together. If you wait till after the divorce, you can no longer do that; therefore, two cases would need to be filed. Thus, by filing together, you can save a filing fee.

If your marriage is breaking up, filing for bankruptcy ahead of time will allow you to clean up your debts and get a true fresh start. You can only imagine the amount of stress relief that may be accomplished by cleaning up your old debts with your soon to be ex-spouse, and how your future could be much brighter if you can avoid having the full obligation of paying all your debts after the divorce is finalized.

As a seasoned bankruptcy law firm, we encourage you to contact a Westchester County bankruptcy attorney from our firm before you file for divorce. A bankruptcy filing prior to your divorce may very well save you a fortune in the long run, thus relieving you of much undue stress and allowing you to obtain a true, fresh start after your divorce!
