Divorce And Bankruptcy

Divorce and bankruptcy often go hand in hand. Many marriages have suffered, and ultimately ended, due to debt problems and other financial strains. On the other hand, divorce can result in financial hardship, leading a recently divorced person into bankruptcy.

If you face divorce and debt problems at the same time, you can benefit from the advice and representation of an attorney who handles both of these practice areas. At Sherlock // Anderson, PC, in Roseville, our lawyers have extensive experience representing clients in divorce and other family law issues as well as in consumer bankruptcies.

We can examine your overall financial situation to help you answer questions such as:

  • Should I file for bankruptcy before or after divorce?
  • Should my spouse and I file jointly?
  • Should I file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy?
  • Is my property covered under California bankruptcy exemptions?

Every situation is different. The right strategy for you depends upon a number of factors, including your income and assets and the amount and nature of your debt. Our attorneys will work with you personally to help you craft a strategy for solving your debt problems while achieving your goals in divorce.
