Marriage or Bankruptcy – Which Should Come First?

If you are drowning in debt and planning to get married soon, you should not only discuss your finances with your fiancé, but also with one of our experienced lawyers. We can help you determine the best timing for the filing of your bankruptcy and your marriage.

When you file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case, you can discharge or eliminate the majority (if not all) of your debt. This includes credit card bills, medical debt, and a wide variety of other types of debt. Thus, filing a case before you get married can help you start your life together with a fresh financial start. It is important to understand that if your credit score is already low due to your delinquent accounts, filing for bankruptcy will probably not have a significant impact on your score.

After you have completed your bankruptcy case and discharged your debt, you can immediately start working to rebuild your credit score. Many of our clients are surprised to learn that with time and hard work, they are able to improve their credit score quicker than they expected.

If you don’t want to enter your marriage with the burden of your debt on your shoulders, contact us to discuss how a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 can help you. We understand that planning for your wedding day is important, but let us assist you with planning for your financial future and get your marriage off to a solid start!
