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 oftentimes 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 before 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.

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 truly 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 before 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!
