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.

Contact Us to Learn About Your Options

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.

Attorneys DJ Rausa and Chris Bush can also discuss the options that apply to very specific circumstances. Whether you pay or receive domestic support, they can advise you about your situation and discuss the best approach to take. Contact Them toll free at (619)295-3322.

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or Mr. Rausa. I chose Mr. Rausa because of his numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. Mr. Rausa personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of Mr. Rausa. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Respected Legal Source

D.J. Rausa interviewed by the Wall Street Journal for article on Bankruptcy and Student Loan Debt.

Debt Doc's D.J. Rausa is recognized as a legal expert in Student Loan Debt Resolution and the associated Bankruptcy Laws.

Read what D.J. recently told The Wall Street Journal regarding the probable rise in Student Loan Debt Resolution through Bankruptcy.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
Debt Doc's attorneys are 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 DJ Rausa at Debt Doc 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,
