I am thinking of filing for bankruptcy. Should I file before or after I file for divorce?

In determining whether you should file for bankruptcy before or after you file your divorce, you should discuss unique circumstances of your situation with your attorney. Then you probably should have a conversation with your soon-to-be ex-spouse to determine whether you should file bankruptcy together before the divorce is final. This way, joint marital debt may be discharged and that would be one less issue to deal with in the divorce.
