Bankruptcy And Divorce
In a country with a record divorce rate — and epidemic levels of unemployment that often lead to personal bankruptcy — it is not uncommon for us to hear questions like these because Allan Dunaway is an attorney with experience handling both consumer bankruptcy and divorce cases:
“Which should I pursue first — my bankruptcy or my divorce? I can’t afford both.”
“If I am also going through a divorce, will a bankruptcy disrupt those proceedings?”
“Should my former spouse and I undertake the bankruptcy separately or together?”
Can Bankruptcy Simplify Your Divorce Settlement?
At the Law Office of Allan E. Dunaway PLC, serving divorcing couples and bankruptcy candidates in Louisville and Jeffersonville since 1999, we have found that filing bankruptcy can actually make a divorce case easier to settle.

Dunaway, so that the proper information can be reviewed.
