Topics Covered

  • Receive a quick overview of the basics of bankruptcy law
  • See how timing matters—get advice on the advantages and disadvantages of filing for bankruptcy before or after the divorce
  • Learn what assets are considered “property of the debtor’s estate” for purposes of a bankruptcy filing—recognize the differences between domestic support obligations and marital obligations for purposes of bankruptcy actions
  • Understand how your attorney fees may be affected by your client’s decision to file for bankruptcy—and get practical advice on what you can do to try to protect your fees

  • Family law issues and financial challenges often go hand in hand. Financial difficulties for a client may result in the client seeking your advice for a divorce, or conversely, a client’s pending divorce may lead the client toward consideration of bankruptcy options. Therefore, it is important to understand the intersection of family law and bankruptcy law—and how to best take care of your client.

    The speaker will guide you carefully through this tricky intersection, and provide advice as a bankruptcy practitioner. Learn how the timing of a bankruptcy can impact a divorce, and vice-versa; understand how assets will be treated during a bankruptcy, and the impact on potential child and spousal support awards; and recognize the impact of a client’s bankruptcy on your attorney fees, and what you can do to try to protect yourself.
