Work With An Experienced Bankruptcy And Divorce Attorney
Divorces are often associated with financial problems. Economic hardships have caused problems in the relationship, or the expense of divorce has caused families to take on overwhelming debt. In either case, the legal representation you seek should address both issues because they will inevitably influence each other.
I am attorney Randall Steele, the principal of Steele Law Offices, LLC, in Glen Carbon, Illinois. For over 30 years I have helped clients effectively navigate bankruptcy and divorce proceedings. With more than 30 years of experience in general practice, I can offer answers and help you understand key issues such as:
- Should I file bankruptcy before or after filing for divorce?
- How will bankruptcy affect my ability to pay or receive child support?
- Will I end up losing my home if my spouse files for bankruptcy?
- Am I responsible for my spouse’s debts?
- The best way to rebuild credit after bankruptcy
Tailored Advice And Guidance To Your Divorce Debt Problems
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to these questions because every family faces different circumstances. Perhaps your premarital or postmarital agreement has clearly outlined who is responsible for certain debts. Perhaps you and your spouse are working cooperatively and are willing to find a way to manage debts together.
The way we proceed will depend on you, your relationship with your spouse/former spouse, the type of debts you seek to discharge, what assets you are trying to save in the process and what chapter of bankruptcy you qualify for.
