San Jose Bankruptcy Attorney  comments on mother accused of drowning her 3-year old who had recently been through a bankruptcy and divorce.

A Sacramento mother accused of drowning her 3-year old daughter had undergone a host of personal issues within the last year including allegations of domestic violence, divorce and bankruptcy.  Added to her legal troubles are charges of murder and an alleged immigration violation.

Anul Ram filed for bankruptcy in 2008 with her debts more than doubling her assets.  From the court filings it appears that most of her financial issues were related to property co-owned with her ex-husband.  During that same time period she filed for divorce from her husband.

Her husband called police asking them to make a welfare check on his children. When police arrived at Ram’s apartment the 3-year old girl was unresponsive and later pronounced dead at the hospital.  The 7-year old boy in the home was unharmed.

While this is an extreme case, the incidences of irrational behavior by people undergoing financial stress and divorce are well-documented.  If you believe that your spouse may do something to harm one of your children, let your family law attorney or bankruptcy attorney know.  They can help you ensure that your children can be kept in the place that will provide them with the safest possible environment.  No parent should have to wonder if they will ever see their child alive again when they drop them off at their ex-spouse’s home as part of a child custody arrangement.
