During divorce, a couple's financial situation is thoroughly reviewed in preparation for the creation of the property settlement agreement. When it becomes clear that there is an extensive amount of debt that will be shared, instead of assets and property, then you have a couple options:
- Postpone the divorce until after you and your spouse have jointly filed for bankruptcy and have had that bankruptcy approved
- Obtain the divorce, and then file separately for bankruptcy
Which option you choose depends upon your relationship with your spouse. If you two can work together, then the first option is likely best for you. If your divorce is highly contested, however, the second option may be better for you.
