Tallahassee Lawyer Handling Bankruptcy and Divorce Matters

Financial problems and marital problems are highly stressful on their own, but the two often go hand in hand. With money issues cited as the most common cause of divorce, many separating and divorcing couples ask themselves whether bankruptcy will help them deal with the pressure of debt that they simply can't afford. In some cases, the answer is yes.

While many of the problems of divorce and bankruptcy are common, no two situations are identical. As a lawyer with more than 30 years of Florida experience in both bankruptcy law and family law, I can help you understand if, how and when to proceed with bankruptcy in the context of a divorce or another relationship problem.

Knowing How and When to File Is Important

Based on your debt and property situation, it may be beneficial to file a joint petition in bankruptcy, or it may be necessary to file individually because of your income or the income of your spouse. Factors I can help you evaluate include:

  • The timing of bankruptcy and divorce
  • Whether a divorce would impact your ability to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13
  • How a bankruptcy will affect your house, your vehicle or other important assets
  • Whether the concept of tenancy by the entirety (sometimes known as joint ownership) applies to your property
