Bankruptcy and Divorce

Experience New Jersey Divorce Attorney

The Effect of Bankruptcy on Divorce

Often, the root cause of marital strife is tied to financial challenges, and divorce only makes the situation worse, at least in the short term. Though a divorce can help you put some financial difficulties behind you, it can take time for everything to get sorted out, and you’ll have only one income to meet your financial obligations. You may wonder whether a bankruptcy filing would be in your best interests. You want to talk with an experienced family law attorney. I can help.

At the Law Offices of Daniel K. Newman, I have worked with individuals in Voorhees, Cherry Hill, Camden County, Burlington County, Gloucester County, Salem County, Atlantic County and across the greater Philadelphia area for many years, handling a broad range of divorce and family law matters. I have a comprehensive knowledge of the laws and procedures, as well as the strategies available to protect your interests. For a free initial consultation, contact us online or call my office at (856) 309-9007.

Bankruptcy and Divorce—Protecting Your Rights

If you have potential financial concerns related to a marriage, I will carefully review the circumstances of your case to determine whether bankruptcy is the best option for you, and if so, whether you should seek to file before or after your divorce is final. I will lay out the advantages and disadvantages, and clearly answer all your questions, so that you can make the best long-term decisions. If we determine that bankruptcy is the best alternative for you, I will work closely with you and with bankruptcy counsel to determine the best time to file.


If you are involved in or considering a divorce, and have concerns about whether a bankruptcy would be in your best interests, contact my office online or call me at (856) 309-9007 to set up a meeting. There is no cost or obligation for your first consultation.

My law office is conveniently located in the Greens of Laurel Oak office park.
