Indiana Divorce and Bankruptcy Lawyer

Indianapolis Bankruptcy Attorney Offers Sound Debt Relief Legal Advice

Are you unhappy in your marriage and failing financially too, due to the national recession?

Are you confused as to which should come first — divorce or the kind of consumer bankruptcy filing that gives you a "fresh start"?

Steven J. Halbert is not a divorce lawyer — but he is a bankruptcy lawyer with almost 25 years of experience in guiding divorcing clients to sound decisions about their finances.

He has successfully counseled individuals and couples whose family law issues are connected to financial distress. His leadership is needed now more than ever, as our struggling economy impacts spouses who want to divorce, but don't think they can afford it.

Many couples in Indiana and the U.S. want to go their separate ways, but find that a legal dissolution of marriage or uncontested divorce may cost too much money — and an expensive contested divorce is simply out of the question.

Steven J. Halbert Has the Facts You Need About Divorce and Bankruptcy in Indiana

If you are considering both divorce and a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing, here are some things you should know:

Both spouses are responsible for debt accumulated during the marriage. These debts can be divided, along with property and assets, in the divorce settlement agreement.

If your ex-spouse does not make good on debt repayment obligations, a creditor can come after you.

When one spouse files for bankruptcy, it often sends the other spouse into bankruptcy too.

After divorce, domestic support obligations are not dischargeable during bankruptcy.

For many couples, the bankruptcy should be entered into first — then the divorce. This determination can be made at your initial consultation with Steven J. Halbert.
