Divorce and Debt

One of the biggest causes for divorce is debt. Many couples do not discuss financial troubles or try to hide debt from each other. Debt can become overwhelming and it’s easy to bury your head in the sand. If you are going through a divorce and have debt – consider a bankruptcy with Geraci Law.

After a divorce is final, a person’s budget is drastically changed. You can lose a spouse’s contribution to the monthly budget or start paying additional spousal maintenance or child support. By eliminating the debt with a Chapter 7, you are able to free up your income to budget new expenses.

Consider your bankruptcy options before a divorce is final. You and your estranged spouse can file a joint bankruptcy and pay only one attorney fee. Once the divorce is finalized, you are no longer able to file together.

Bankruptcy and divorce are complicated legal matters. It’s extremely important to seek legal counsel before making any decisions. Peter Francis Geraci and Geraci Law are experienced in all consumer bankruptcy matters including how it could affect your divorce. You both can have a financial fresh start!
