Getting You Through Financial Burdens Toward a Fresh Start
No matter what stage of the divorce you are at, a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing by your ex-spouse will affect you. Creditors may call. Other actions could be taken against you if you and your spouse have a loan on your home or car.
In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, though the filing spouse may be protected during the bankruptcy process, non-filing spouses and co-signers can still be liable to creditors and experience harassing phone calls as a result. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, however, both spouses can enjoy the protections that the bankruptcy process offers.
Though both can be an emotional time, there can be an upside to divorce and bankruptcy. You can get the fresh start that you need. An attorney at our firm can help you through this difficult time.
