Strategies for filing for bankruptcy during divorce

Filing for divorce is a difficult process for most couples. When divorce occurs at the same time as a bankruptcy filing, the process can seem almost impossible.

However, there a number of strategies to make the process easier. First, couples should consider file for joint bankruptcy before getting a divorce. The joint bankruptcy often has many advantages over separate bankruptcy filings.

Also, filing for bankruptcy before a divorce can facilitate the terms of alimony and child support.
