Credit Card Debt, Mortgage and School Loans After Divorce

In the current economic climate, more couples are divorcing with significant debts rather than significant assets. In many cases, the combination of assets, investments and debts can make the division of property in divorce even more complex. At The Law Office of J. Kevin Clark P.C. in Fort Worth, Texas, our attorneys will review your personal financial circumstances and advise you on the best way to protect your interests through the debt division process.

We can also work aggressively on your behalf to minimize your debt before, during and after a divorce.
