A Common Problem

Oftentimes, financial problems in a marriage contribute to a divorce. Many people continue to have financial problems after a divorce. Some people may have the expenses of repaying their ex-spouse's debts, paying child support and struggling to maintain a household. The emotional effects can result in depression, the inability to work and the eventual loss of a job. Our board-certified attorneys can help you manage your debt and get a new beginning on life after a divorce.

How Do New Bankruptcy Laws Affect Child Support?

Under old bankruptcy laws, it was possible to file an "automatic stay" that averted legal action regarding unpaid child support. Under the new bankruptcy laws, child support as well as alimony will take precedence over other creditors' claims. Child support is designed to provide financial support for your children. Our firm can help you continue to support your children, manage your debt and regain control of your financial situation.
