Unfortunately for divorce and bankruptcy lawyers, these two, otherwise unrelated areas of law, often collide. And, like most collisions, there is often a mess left behind.

This course provides divorce lawyers with an understanding of the bankruptcy issues that can affect their cases in hopes of better advising clients of the risks they face, options that exist and to provide a framework to draft better settlement agreements.

Key course points are:
• Learn to what to do with pre-petition transfers.
• Discover ways to avoid secured debts.
• Identify ways to address divorce obligations.
• Learn how to handle non-exempt assets.
• Identify ways to "squeeze" into Chapter 7
