Divorce Related Bankruptcy


If bankruptcy matters arise after a divorce, you will likely have questions about obligations and what you can and cannot discharge in a bankruptcy. It is important to understand the differences between dischargeable and non-dischargeable debts or obligations.

In Kentucky, domestic obligation debts such as alimony (maintenance) and child support cannot be discharged in a bankruptcy. However, back support can be consolidated and paid off through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Our Louisville alimony and bankruptcy attorneys know the law and will be working on your team to help you get debt relief. We have significant experience representing men and women in Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy matters involving divorce and have a core group of lawyers with specific experience in this area.

Please contact our bankruptcy lawyers to schedule a free initial consultation. Call our Louisville office at 502-400-4020. Consultations can be scheduled at any of our four offices, and evening and weekend appointments are available by request.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

Divorce-related bankruptcy issues most often arise in one of two situations:

  • A couple is still married, is contemplating divorce and wishes to resolve debt before the divorce
  • An individual is divorced and owes his or her former spouse for marital debt

If you are contemplating divorce, we can work with both you and your spouse to quickly obtain the information you need. If you are already divorced, we can meet with you to discuss your options, including the advisability of filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In many instances, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can effectively free debtors from the obligation to repay debt to a former spouse following divorce.

Whether you are facing a divorce-related foreclosure or are struggling to meet mortgage payments following a breakup with a partner to whom you were not married, we can provide the legal help you need. For more information about our firm and your bankruptcy rights and options, contact our offices.
