Managing major debt and going through a divorce are two of the most stressful situations a person can go through, and for many people, they are inter-related. There are important laws regulating how divorce settlements are affected by bankruptcy and our lawyers can help you understand your rights, so we can create a plan that works.

Bankruptcy After Divorce

The most important thing to understand about filing for bankruptcy after your divorce is that obligations under your settlement are not dischargeable. You have to make payments on both alimony and child support. However, under chapter 13 bankruptcy, restructuring spousal and child support payments is possible. You have flexibility and options, even though the debt will not be discharged.
