Bankruptcy And Divorce

It is not uncommon for a person to file bankruptcy shortly after he or she has been through a divorce. In many cases, there is enough money to support one household, but not two. Making ends meet can be especially difficult for the spouse who is required to pay child support or alimony. Discuss your case with a Tampa post-divorce bankruptcy attorney who can help you understand your rights and options.

At the law firm of Buddy D. Ford, P.A., we take the time to fully understand your concerns. We know how overwhelming it can be to face financial hardship, particularly after you've just been through a divorce. You can count on us to walk you through the entire process and be there with you at every step.

Dischargeable And Nondischargeable Debts In Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy can do many things for you, such as stopping collection activity, wage garnishments, foreclosure proceedings and repossession actions. In addition, it gives you the ability to wipe out your dischargeable debts. Dischargeability is an important distinction because not all debts can be discharged in bankruptcy.

If you have been ordered to pay child support or alimony, it cannot be discharged, but it may be possible to reorganize those payments. If the debt is connected to a property settlement, however, it may be able to be discharged. Our only goal is to find the debt relief solution that will help you get back on the right financial path. We will work with you to build a customized plan designed specifically to meet your needs.
