Bankruptcy And Divorce

Divorce can be an immensely costly process, leaving spouses in rough financial situations. Additionally, the burden of losing a dual income can create problems, depending on assets owned — for instance, more than one house. Things can be compounded in the case of a spouse who has to pay support.

Many wonder if bankruptcy provides an avenue for debt relief. Alimony and support payments are not dischargeable, nor are equitable distribution debt judgments. Additionally, there can be issues with respect to debtor obligations depending on how the debt is divided, following divorce.

All of these issues have layers of complexity. If you are working through similar issues in or near Sandusky, Ohio, our lawyer and team are ready to put more than 25 years of experience to work for you.
