Things to Consider Before Filing for Divorce

If you and your spouse are considering filing for bankruptcy and divorce, you may be wondering which you should do first. There can be benefits to filing bankruptcy before a divorce settlement is finalized. You may want to file while you are still married.

Debbie and I wanted to take the time to thank you for representing and guiding us through our bankruptcy. You were all we could have asked for in an attorney and our bankruptcy could not have gone more smoothly. Had we, in advance to meeting you, been asked to draw a 'picture' of the attorney we wanted, that 'picture' would have been of an attorney with the knowledge, skills and attributes of Nicholas Gebelt. 

It is our experience that one rarely gets what one needs. Our case defied our past experience—we needed a superb attorney and a very decent human-being (all-in-one), and we got both—you! Thank you for immediately responding to us each time we had a question(s). Often, you had already answered our question(s), but you patiently answered them again (and again) as if it was the first time. You clearly explained the steps for freedom from our debts through bankruptcy, the short and long term impact, the law, the costs, and other great information as we needed it. 

For those in our situation, please share with them that if they are meeting with you, they have made the first, smartest and most important move on their way to becoming debt free and emotionally liberated. Let them know that we, too, were scared, embarrassed, filled with anxiety, and at our wits end. You gave us hope and direction, and eventually a fresh start. Let them know that with you in our corner, we never felt alone or lost throughout the process. 

We are invigorated with the hope of our fresh start. Debbie and I cannot more earnestly thank you for all you have done for our family and whole-heartedly recommend you to anyone who is in need of a top notch attorney and human being. 

With sincere gratitude, 

Boyd and Debbie, Bellflower, California (Received July 28, 2010 - Letter on file)

One step in the divorce process is the assignment of debts. If you file for bankruptcy before divorce, there will not be any debts to assign during that part of the divorce. This could mean that both parties will enter post-divorce life debt-free.

An additional benefit to filing bankruptcy prior to divorce is that it alleviates a lot of the financial stress in your marriage. We have seen couples who file for bankruptcy and then realize they can work out their marital problems now that they are not dealing with financial problems.
