Definitely file before your divorce is final.

If you intend on filing bankruptcy together, you must be still married. If you will be filing on your own, you should wait until after your divorce is final to file your bankruptcy. The timing depends on your goals and the nature of your debts. We need more information to give you a more specific response. Please feel free to contact us should you require more
