Orlando Bankruptcy And Divorce Lawyer

Financial troubles are a common source of marital problems. In fact, many couples thinking about filing for divorce may also be thinking about filing for bankruptcy. If this describes your situation, it is important to work with a lawyer who understands how bankruptcy and divorce relate to each other. For years, we at The Marin Law Firm, P.A., have worked with people across Orlando and the surrounding areas. When you hire our firm, we will help you understand your options and work tirelessly to achieve your goals.

Which Comes First: The Divorce Or The Bankruptcy?

Our attorney, Carmelina Marin, brings many years of experience to every case. Over this time she has helped many people dealing with both family and financial problems. While every situation is unique, there are often advantages to filing bankruptcy before filing for divorce, such as:

  • Marital debt is resolved before the divorce, making the divorce process easier.
  • Going through bankruptcy as a couple can often mean you pay a single bankruptcy attorney's fee.

If filing bankruptcy before divorce is in your best interests, you can depend on us to effectively navigate these legal processes.

In other situations, however, a spouse will file bankruptcy during divorce, or an ex-spouse files bankruptcy after divorce. When this happens, creditors will likely go after the other spouse for any joint debts. If you are being hounded by creditors after your ex-spouse filed for bankruptcy, we can help you determine what is best for your situation. Whether we ultimately decide to file bankruptcy or seek an alternative, you can count on us to provide careful, affordable representation.
