Divorce Bankruptcy and Houses in NY


I was sitting in front of a man who had gone through everything bad in his life, and all in a very short span of time.

First, he'd lost his job of 15 years. A mid-level New York executive in a field that favored the young, his prospects were bleak. But he kept plugging away, working towards a new career in an industry that would pay less but let him keep living in New York while giving him the stability he sought for himself and his family.

Then his wife announced that she was packing up and moving out. For good. The details aren't important, it's just enough to say that when a marriage is over not many positive thoughts spring to mind.

The kids had their share of issues surrounding the break-up, as did the man and his soon-to-be ex-wife. Where to live (New York is a big state), how to keep up with the monthly bills, and the like kept everyone awake on more than one occasion.
