How does my divorce affect my bankruptcy?

Generally that would depend on whether you're in the process of getting a divorce or you're already divorced. If you're in the process of getting divorced, you should discuss with your soon to be ex-spouse whether the two of you should file together, which would address the issue of marital debt in the bankruptcy. You'd be killing two birds with one stone. However, if your divorce is already finalized, the bankruptcy should have no effect on support obligations or equitable distribution of marital property and marital debt in most circumstances.
