Veitengruber Law and the Divorce Attorney: How We Can Help You

Today’s post marks the first in a series entitled ‘Veitengruber Law and the Professional: How We Can Help You.’  In this series we will focus on one professional group each week who could definitely benefit from teaming up with us, and we’ll explain why it would be beneficial to work with us.  This week, we focus on all of the divorce lawyers out there.

While bankruptcy and divorce are two separate legal processes that are sort of at odds with eachother, the reality is that they both happen at the same time more often than not. Many couples who are heading down the path toward divorce are spending more money than they have because most are trying to support two households if one party has moved out.  Quite a few people end up putting their attorney’s fees on a credit card, and, depending on the complexity level of the divorce and how long it drags out…credit cards can get maxed out.  Conversely, it’s possible that money problems during the marriage were what led to the divorce in the first place.  Disagreements over money are one of the number one reasons why couples just can’t make things work in their relationships.

Whatever the case may be, if you are a divorce attorney who is handling a multitude of cases that sound like this, working together with a bankruptcy attorney can be a wise decision.  When the couple in question has a divorce attorney and a bankruptcy attorney working in tandem for them, they will likely end up paying less in attorneys’ fees. If the divorce becomes finalized and then they decide to file for bankruptcy, it must be done separately, thus demanding hiring two bankruptcy attorneys and paying twice the fees that they (obviously) didn’t have in the first place.

Veitengruber Law specializes in bankruptcy and debt resolution matters, and we’ve seen enough cases involving divorced or divorcing couples that we’ve devised a way to improve the process for many of these couples and their divorce attorneys. By working together, we can provide y(our) clients with the services they need at the appropriate time; killing two birds with one proverbial stone.

Because filing for bankruptcy and divorce at the same time can be complicated, we would like to help you when you need guidance for these particular clients.  Call upon us to evaluate each case on an individual basis, much like you will call on many other professionals throughout the course of the divorce, like appraisers, CPA’s and custody evaluators and mediators. We can also guide your client(s) through the process of amending their estate plan, or last will and testament, as needed.

Instead of attempting to juggle all of the financial complexities that present themselves during any divorce, let us deal with the complicated laws surrounding personal bankruptcy and estate planning while you focus on all of the obstacles that are bound to arise in family court. This makes both of our jobs easier, and it helps the clients. We call that a win/win/win.
