Dear srapilverd:

Greetings. It may have a large effect or no effect. We would have to consult with your bankruptcy attorney, review the discharge documents, and go over the existing marital estate, which we cannot do here on the forum. Suffice to say that we could definitely tell you how this would affect your situation if you had a consultation with us. Thank you.

My husband and I filed bankruptcy about 6 months ago. How does this affect an upcoming separation and/or divorce?
