Versatile American actor Joey Lawrence and his wife Chandie Lawrence had reportedly been filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last year. According to the court documents obtained, the Brotherly Love star and his wife filed for bankruptcy eight months ago in July 2017.
The documents stated that the couple owes $88,000 in back taxes and has $132,000 worth of credit card debt. Joey and Chandie reportedly listed their total liabilities at $355,517.27 at the time of filing.
In the filing, Joey writes he has been an actor for 35 years and his total monthly income is $6,966 while Chandie is listed as unemployed in the court documents.

The documents further show a major change in the actor's income from 2015 to 2016. In 2015, Joey made just over $534,000 and in the following year, the Blossom alum made about $58,400. This drop in income is said to be a result of his show, Melissa & Joey, being canceled after four seasons in 2015.
At the time of the filing, Joey and Chandie stated in the documents that the couple had $60 in cash on hand and about $8,000 total in their bank accounts. Before they filed for bankruptcy, they sold personal items on Buffalo Exchange and eBay.
While the bankruptcy of the couple, who are married since July 2005 and shares two children, is still pending, the couple did have their debt discharged.
