Helping Clients Understand How Bankruptcy and Divorce Are Related

Independently, divorce and bankruptcy are emotional and stressful issues. Together, they can be thoroughly overwhelming and can leave a couple or an individual with many questions and concerns. With the help of an experienced bankruptcy attorney, your options can be clarified and you can obtain enough information to make an educated decision.

At the Law Office of Ronald D. Cummings, we advise clients in Joliet and Will County, Illinois, on how bankruptcy issues can affect a divorce. We also provide comprehensive advice and guidance to clients wishing to divorce but who are finding it difficult to understand how they will afford to live apart. Divorce is a type of issue that may have more lasting personal and financial impacts than bankruptcy. However, exploring both bankruptcy and divorce issues before making any decisions can be extremely beneficial. Contact our office today to further discuss your specific questions or concerns.

In some situations, it may be in your best interests to file for a joint bankruptcy before filing for divorce. This can help eliminate a large portion of the unsecured debt that was accumulated throughout the course of your marriage. This also helps prevent a situation where one spouse gets stuck with the entire debt. We can help you understand how a divorce judgment or order for child support or maintenance may be affected by bankruptcy.
