Rhode Island Bankruptcy Attorney on Bankruptcy and Divorce
Divorce can be a financial calamity for both parties. Unless you are financially well off, it is often very difficult — if not impossible — to maintain the lifestyle you enjoyed prior to the divorce.
How It Happens
Instead of two incomes and one set of bills, both former spouses have to pay their own rent or mortgage, utilities, grocery bills, taxes, etc. If children are involved, the noncustodial parent has additional costs for child support and the costs of visitation.Paying for plane fare or transportation to see your children can put a strain on finances. Even taking the kids out to eat or to see a movie on your days with them adds up.
Rhode Island bankruptcy attorney John S. Simonian has been filing personal bankruptcy for clients for more than 20 years. It is a very common circumstance for individuals to seek out help a year or two after a divorce.
Something Has to Give
When expenses go up, but income stays the same, something has to give. Often, individuals turn to credit cards and pay day loans to get by. Some well-meaning parents try to put their children first, paying child support with credit cards. Within a few years, you can easily have $30,000 or more in debt and no way to get out from under it. Paying the minimum won't make a dent in what you owe.
