 Charleston South Carolina Bankruptcy and Divorce Lawyer


Charleston Bankruptcy and Divorce Attorney

Many people know that financial problems are one of the primary reasons for divorce. However, often they do not realize that dividing shared marital property includes dividing marital debt. Therefore, your debt problems will not be fully resolved through divorce alone. Instead, you should consult an attorney who understands the relationship between divorce and debt.

I am attorney Ingrid H. Rudolph, and I concentrate my law practice on helping people through difficult family law and bankruptcy matters. From my office in Charleston, South Carolina, I assist clients considering divorce during bankruptcy or who face debt problems due to divorce. I work personally with clients throughout the entire process. I help them understand their options so that they can make informed decisions about how to proceed.

How A Versatile Charleston Attorney Can Help You

Under federal law, I may legally represent you in either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings during your divorce proceedings, and the bankruptcy process requires full financial disclosure. Due to my extensive experience with divorce and family law, as your lawyer I can help you understand the implications of filing for divorce during bankruptcy or the merits of filing for bankruptcy before seeking divorce.

Debt problems can affect everything in a person's world, sometimes ruining marriages and careers because of the stress. As an attorney, I am passionate about helping people overcome these problems and more.

When you have significant debt obligations, it is sometimes better to postpone your divorce until after your bankruptcy is complete. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 before hand will often simplify the marital division process, leaving you free to move on with your life debt-free.
