Helping You Resolve Difficult Issues and Make the Right Decisions

The end of a marriage is a difficult time for anyone, especially if - as is often the case - it is accompanied by financial problems. Before you take any action on your bankruptcy or your divorce, it is important to get skilled guidance on issues such as the following:

  • The timing of bankruptcy and divorce: Under Kentucky law, married couples have different bankruptcy exemptions than unmarried people. Exemptions are important because they preserve assets from being sold off by the bankruptcy court. In addition, filing joint bankruptcy is generally less expensive than filing two individual bankruptcies.
  • Asset and debt division concerns: In divorce, both assets and debts are divided. Dividing debts, however, does not stop creditors from suing both parties if those debts go unpaid. Marital asset division can also have an impact on bankruptcy exemptions.
  • Domestic support concerns: Domestic support, including both spousal and child support, cannot be stayed or discharged in bankruptcy. However, in divorce decrees, it is not always clear what counts as spousal support and what counts as property division.

These are just a few of the complexities affecting people who are considering both bankruptcy and divorce. With his strong financial background and experience in both family and bankruptcy law, attorney L. Craig Kendrick is ideally situated to help clients unravel these tricky issues.
