Divorce and Domestic Support Obligations

Divorce and Domestic Support Obligations are determined under state law. Typically, where there is a state support or divorce court order, a bankruptcy court will not disrupt the state court order.

Divorce Proceedings:

The filing of a bankruptcy does not automatically stop a proceeding in divorce court from continuing. Only under certain circumstances will a bankruptcy proceeding impact a divorce proceeding.

A Divorce Court will make preliminary and final orders with respect to visitation, marital status, division of property and debt, and support obligations, such as child and spousal support.

Support Orders:

Once support orders are made, they will remain in effect until they are complete or changed by the divorce court. A Bankruptcy Court will not modify support orders.

Delinquent or back domestic support orders can be addressed in a bankruptcy. The support order that is owed is a non dischargeable debt, but a repayment schedule of that debt can be crafted in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

If you pay support, you may be able to seek a modification to the original support order. If you receive support, you may seek an enforcement action to collect back payments and to ensure future support.

Thank you DJ!

I had no idea where to start with my bankruptcy and process. After my first meeting with DJ I felt confident that things were going to go well. He helped guide me through the entire process and time. 

He's very professional and courteous, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. 

I would recommend anyone that needs a bankruptcy lawyer/ student loans. 

Don't have a second thought when choosing DJ Rausa!

Respected Legal Source

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
Mr. Rausa is extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted Mr. Rausa and found him to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. He was sure he could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months he successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend Mr. Rausa.
Please contact me if you have any additional questions.
Sincerely,
