We Will Simplify the Complexities of Bankruptcy and Divorce.
When considering bankruptcy it is important to think about when to file. When a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is filed, an automatic stay is issued, preventing any further debt collection proceedings. Not only does this stop foreclosure proceedings and credit collections calls, it could also affect a pending divorce proceeding until the bankruptcy is resolved or until the automatic stay is lifted. In addition, equitable distribution, alimony and child support obligations are all specifically treated within the Bankruptcy Code and must be handled appropriately in order for your bankruptcy proceeding to serve your best interests.
