Attorneys To Help With Your Bankruptcy And Divorce

Despite people’s best hopes and dreams, marriages don’t always last. If your divorce appears inevitable, you should be aware that in Florida, family debt is considered marital “property” just as much as the house and other assets. Filing for bankruptcy is often the best option for eliminating marital debt before you file. Notably, divorce settlements are nondischargeable under the Bankruptcy Code. This means that if a divorce settlement is reached prior to filing for bankruptcy, it must be paid, regardless of your other circumstances. This may affect your ability to meet the payment obligations created by Chapter 13 restructuring.
