Filing for Bankruptcy During a Divorce — What Are the Benefits?

There can often be many complexities involved in bankruptcy and divorce in California, so it is in your best interests to seek assistance from an experienced attorney who has in-depth knowledge of the bankruptcy laws. We will take time to help explain the benefits and drawbacks of filing together, and whether or not it is in your best interests to file before or after the divorce.

  • Filing before a divorce: If you are considering a divorce, we can advise on the benefits of filing before the divorce is finalized. If you file together, it is often more cost-efficient and can make the divorce process simpler from the aspect of dealing with dividing community property and assets.
  • Filing after a divorce: Filing after a divorce can mean that there are more steps involved in the bankruptcy process, but this is something we are well equipped to handle. If property has not yet been divided, all community property will go into the bankruptcy estate, even if your spouse is not filing. Support and domestic/family law court orders are not dischargeable in a bankruptcy.
