Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Divorce

Which comes first — the bankruptcy or the divorce? Or can one of them prevent the other?

A family law issue is the number one cause for bankruptcy. A financial issue is the number one cause for stress between a husband and wife.

At Budget Law Center, we have successfully completed more than 10,000 divorces and thousands of bankruptcies in Long Beach, Huntington Beach and throughout Southern California. What we have learned is this:

A bankruptcy can often prevent a divorce. Once the financial stress is gone, the couples often find a way to work things out.

Low Cost ∙ Fixed Fees ∙ Free Consultations

There is not a right or wrong order to accomplishing a divorce and bankruptcy. At Budget Legal Center, we focus on family law and bankruptcy and can offer both for a fixed low cost fee rather than for an hourly rate. If you think that it’s going to be too expensive to hire an attorney, think again. Paying high hourly fees for an attorney is outdated. It’s inefficient. It’s expensive. It just doesn’t make sense.

Budget Legal Center makes sense.
