Houston Bankruptcy and Divorce Lawyers


When Divorce Leads to Bankruptcy


Often people discover too late just how much damage a divorce can do to their financial health. As a result, an absolutely staggering number of people will be put into the position of filing for bankruptcy within just a year after their divorce. Some estimates suggest that more than half of all women with children will file for bankruptcy in the wake of their divorce.


At Acosta Law, our Houston bankruptcy attorneys know how destructive a divorce can be to a person's or family's finances, and we can help you take action to get your life and future back on track.


Handling the Complex Issues of Debt and Divorce


The aftermath of divorce can leave individuals who may never have imagined needing a bankruptcy attorney in the past suddenly facing unmanageable debt. Even if you have never owned a credit card, Texas law says that you may suddenly be responsible for part of a former spouse's credit card, car or medical debt. And, should your former spouse file for
bankruptcy, creditors may choose to come after you for repayment.


What makes the issue even more complex is that divorce can lead to a lot of
nondischargeable debt, such as spousal or child support, which bankruptcy can't change. If you are facing seemingly insurmountable financial challenges,
our experienced bankruptcy lawyers can help.
