Guiding You Through A Difficult Time
Financial problems can put significant stress on a marriage. Unfortunately for many couples, this stress becomes unbearable and leads to a divorce. Bankruptcy and divorce are two of the most personal and difficult situations many will face in their lifetime.
At the Helbing Law Office, LLC, we provide advice and counsel for individuals and couples filing bankruptcy during divorce across Northeastern Wisconsin and the Fox Cities. We recognize how divorce may complicate a bankruptcy proceeding or vice versa. Our goal is to find a solution that meets your expectations and help you move forward.
Assisting With Bankruptcy During Divorce
Wisconsin is a marital property state. This means that all property, including income, is owned equally between the parties. Even in situations where only one spouse files for bankruptcy, all the marital property will be included in the Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing. As a result, the non-filing spouse may be affected.
There is no single solution to bankruptcy for a couple seeking a divorce. Each spouse may have interests separate from the other. Therefore, careful planning is crucial. While divorce ends your marriage, bankruptcy gives each of you a fresh start.
We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
