Bankruptcy & Divorce Lawyer — Lawrenceville, Georgia
A Common Scenario
We have seen it too often at our firm. A parent is abandoned by his or her spouse and left with the responsibility of raising the children and clearing up the financial obligations. The abandoning parent is nowhere to be seen and fails to make timely child support payments – if they make any at all.
Fortunately for people who find themselves in this scenario, there is financial relief. At the bankruptcy firm of George R. Belche, Attorney at Law, we have helped numerous clients in this situation file for bankruptcy and discharge their unsecured debt. These clients are now able to meet monthly payments.

If I’m Considering Divorce, When Should I File?
Not all situations are like the one mentioned above. Sometimes financial problems exacerbate domestic ones. Sometimes, one partner’s economic problems compromise another’s. Our firm speaks to many people who face financial hardship and are considering divorce. The primary question they ask is: “Should I file for bankruptcy before or after my divorce?”
While every case is different and deserves to be examined on its own terms, we generally believe it is best to file for bankruptcy prior to getting divorced. If possible, wipe out as much debt as you can before the divorce. Our firm can help you examine financial matters before your divorce and advise you on how your family law attorney can help minimize the financial strain as you go through the process.
Child Support and Bankruptcy
While bankruptcy will temporarily halt checking or savings account garnishments, foreclosure and repossession, child support is never dischargeable. We believe that providing your children with continued support is important. By filing for bankruptcy, you are able to eliminate unsecured debt which provides you with greater freedom to provide consistent financial support for your children.
Find relief from the weight of financial and domestic pressure. At the firm of George R. Belche, Attorney at Law, we have been helping clients file for bankruptcy for 15 years. We look forward to helping you through the bankruptcy process from beginning to end. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
