How Does Bankruptcy Affect Divorce?

At our firm, we frequently work with clients who are simultaneously going through the divorce process and considering personal bankruptcy. Given the level of experience that our lawyers have handling complex divorce, high net worth divorce and divorce involving businesses, we know when to identify if bankruptcy is the right solution for our clients and can explain the benefits of filing either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
