Bankruptcy & Divorce in Arizona
Bankruptcy and Financial Obligations in a Divorce
Divorce can lead to extreme financial hardship for both spouses, especially in cases where one spouse is ordered to pay child support or spousal support. Divorce is one of the primary causes in Arizona that drive a person to file for bankruptcy. In cases where there is enough money to support one household together, running two households separately can create some issues.
If you have been divorced and are having trouble keeping up with your bills, you should consult an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. At AZBK Lawyers we help clients throughout Maricopa County to find viable debt relief solutions including bankruptcy and other alternative solutions.
