The good folks at the Collaborative Law gathering yesterday had the same questions that their clients have: when is the right time to file bankruptcy? what happens when you file? what does it do to (for?) your life?
Collaborative Law, as I understand it, involves couples in a cooperative effort with a shared set of legal, financial, and mental health professionals to navigate a divorce. My task was to add the bankruptcy arrow to their quiver.
It was energizing to meet a vibrant, engaged group of professionals all trying to make divorce and the accompanying issues more rational, less expensive, more comprehensive.
