Bankruptcy & Divorce

If you are considering filing for divorce, it is important to know that marital debt is treated just like other marital property and is subject to an equitable distribution by the court. Equitable distribution requires the court to split all of the marital property 50/50, including debts, between you and your ex-spouse unless factors are present that would make an even split inequitable. Therefore, filing for divorce won’t necessarily eliminate your debt or transfer all responsibility for the debt to your ex-spouse.

In some circumstances, a borrower may need to convert their Chapter 13 bankruptcy into a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For example, this may occur when a borrower in Chapter 13 is unable to make the payments required under the Chapter 13 payment plan. If that were to occur, converting to Chapter 7 may the best option. Both Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies are designed to provide debt relief for borrowers seeking help from overwhelming debt. However, there are many key differences between a Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your debt will be discharged in exchange for liquidating your non-exempt assets. On the other hand, under Chapter 13 you set up a three-to-five-year payment plan that is based on your income, and you will not be required to liquidate any assets.

If a debt is discharged in bankruptcy the borrower will be released from all liability on the debt. The discharge is a permanent court order releasing the borrower from the responsibility of having to pay the debt and prohibits the creditor from taking any collection action against the borrower.
