We’ve all heard it before, and it’s true – one of the top reasons marriages end in divorce is due to finances.
I’ve practiced bankruptcy law in Memphis for over 30 years and many times, it’s a married couple that comes in together and then the blame game starts. One has a spending problem. One has a gambling problem. One won’t work. The blame game can become exhausting.
Instead of fighting over whose fault the debt is, take a team approach and make a collective decision to file bankruptcy. Don’t let your finances come in between your love for one another, resulting in a divorce. Come talk to us.
In no way are we life counselors here at Darrell Castle & Associates, but we can help you with your finances. If you’re in debt and aren’t sure how you’re going to get out, instead of stressing and worrying about how you’re going to pay your bills, file for a bankruptcy.
Your debt can either be discharged through a Chapter 7 or you can lump it all into an affordable 3-5 year repayment plan through a Chapter 13. An experienced attorney can help you make that decision.
And you shouldn’t be scared of a bankruptcy. In fact, with the right attitude and lifestyle changes, you can come out of the bankruptcy process stronger financially than you went in – all it takes is a little work and patience.
We have a great tool to help you with that – a 14-week program called “7 Steps to a 720” that will teach you secrets the banks don’t want you to know, helping you re-establish and rebuild your credit the right way. This program is free for our clients.
Don’t let finances ruin your marriage. Instead of pointing blame on why you’re in debt, agree on a bankruptcy and then take the steps to improve your habits. Save more. Spend wisely.
