When Divorce And Bankruptcy Meet

Bankruptcy attorney, Bruce A. Lanser, possesses a thorough knowledge of not only the laws pertaining to Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but also Wisconsin's marital property laws. Bankruptcy and divorce present an interesting but complex intersection of the law and it important to understand the effect one has on the other. Area divorce lawyers count on us for that type of representation.

Helping You Make Smart Decisions In Everyone's Best Interests

One spouse filing bankruptcy prior to divorce is not generally a good option. The negative impact on both the filing and nonfiling spouse can be significant.

At Lanser Law Office, we will work with you and your divorce lawyer to develop a strategy to address your financial difficulties in the context of a pending or contemplated divorce. Despite any acrimony in your marriage, it is usually in the mutual best interests of both spouses to cooperate with one another to resolve their debt issues prior to concluding a divorce.

In the end, we want you to make smart decisions that make financial sense for both you. We invite you to contact us to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation. Email us or call us at 262-522-2280. We represent clients in Waukesha, New Berlin and throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
