Should you get married or file bankruptcy first?If you have overwhelming debt and you are planning to get married, it is important to discuss your finances not only with your fiancé, but also with a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney. Timing a bankruptcy filing and your wedding day can be very beneficial.

Filing a bankruptcy case to eliminate the majority of your debt before you get married can help you start your life together with a fresh financial start. A bankruptcy filing can eliminate credit card bills, medical bills and numerous other types of debt. Additionally, if you already have a low credit score, the bankruptcy filing will likely not have a big impact on your score.

Once you have completed your bankruptcy filing and obtained your discharge order, you can immediately start rebuilding your credit. With time, patience and dedication, you can improve your credit score.

You don’t want to enter into your marriage with debt weighing down upon you. Take action to deal with your debt by consulting a bankruptcy attorney to determine how a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 can benefit you. By taking action before your wedding day, you can help get your marriage off to a great start!
