Guiding You Toward A Brighter Financial Future

Skilled Counsel On Bankruptcy And Family Law

As a dedicated Tennessee bankruptcy attorney, Mark T. Young understands that divorce proceedings and bankruptcy petitions often go hand in hand. If you are considering divorce and also need financial relief through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection, it is important that you seek guidance from a qualified lawyer.

Divorce, Child Support And Bankruptcy

At Mark T. Young & Associates, in Chattanooga, our legal team understands the emotional and financial issues associated with divorce and bankruptcy. We devote the necessary time, talent and resources to help clients achieve their financial goals. To that extent, we have helped couples and individuals determine if they should file for bankruptcy while going through divorce proceedings. In some cases, it is advisable for the couple to file together. In other cases, it is best for each person to file separately.

Oftentimes, divorce lawyers send their clients to our firm to file for bankruptcy. Depending on your situation, filing for bankruptcy before handling your divorce can help streamline your divorce proceedings.

It is important to note that child support and alimony obligations are nondischargeable debts under the Bankruptcy Code. You cannot discharge or wipe away child support payments in Chapter 7. You may place back child support (arrears) in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which could enable you to catch up on your support.
