Huntsville Divorce Bankruptcy Attorney
Madison Debt from Divorce Attorney
Consumer Bankruptcy and Your Alabama Domestic Obligations
One of the most common causes of bankruptcy is the excessive debt that is brought about by divorce. Expenses such as legal fees and court costs, finding a new residence, buying new household items, and so on, can leave people with little money to keep up with their bills and their child support or alimony payments.
If you are filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy while paying or receiving spousal support or child support from your divorce, you should consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney right away. Jack B. Sabatini has counseled people just like you in North Alabama for more than 30 years.

Need Help With Your Child and Spousal Support? Speak With Jack B. Sabatini.
In general, obligations to pay child support and spousal support or alimony cannot be eliminated in bankruptcy. Even if other debts are successfully discharged in bankruptcy, you will still be obligated to support your children and your former spouse if that was part of the divorce judgment.
However, in some instances, bankruptcy could have an effect on your property settlement or division of debts in divorce. For example, if one ex-spouse owes money to the other, for something other than spousal or child support, that debt may be discharged under certain circumstances.
These issues can become very complicated, so it’s best to consult an experienced attorney for advice before you assume you can discharge any particular debts. Whether you give or receive domestic support, Jack B. Sabatini has answers to your questions and help you find solutions to your personal bankruptcy problems.
