Bankruptcy and Divorce

How does a divorce affect bankruptcy? Getting divorced during a bankruptcy presents major ethical considerations for your Georgia bankruptcy attorney when a husband and wife file a case together (See Georgia Model Rules of Professional Conduct). In an individual case, your Georgia bankruptcy attorney may simply need to file amendment reflecting the loss income of the spouse and a new expense list. In either situation, the bankruptcy attorney will need to sit down with the client and review the entire case.
