Same-sex Marriage Bankruptcy
Usually there are warning signs or “red flags” that your financial situation may require filing for bankruptcy. When these flags go up, you need to act before your finances get even worse. A good bankruptcy lawyer can determine what type of bankruptcy petition is best for you and your partner. For most couples, filing a joint bankruptcy petition is more expedient than filing for an individual bankruptcy, but not always. In a joint bankruptcy, you have to list all of the debts still owed by both spouses, including all joint and individual debts. With a joint bankruptcy you can eliminate the dischargeable debts of both partners without filing two individual petitions. However, the types of debt you have significantly affect whether a joint bankruptcy or an individual bankruptcy is in your best interests. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can give you the best advice.
