Dealing With Child Or Spousal Support Related Debt

Are you newly divorced, in financial distress and seeking to eliminate past-due child support or spousal support as debt in a consumer bankruptcy filing?

In Memphis, Shelby County and surrounding areas in Tennessee, I am the lawyer whose experience, compassion and reliability can bring you back to sound financial footing.

I can explain the role of dischargeable debt in Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 consumer bankruptcy and whether child support or spousal support obligations qualify. I’m Ben Sissman — for more than 30 years, an attorney dedicated to brighter futures for my bankruptcy clients. I offer experienced, compassionate, reliable representation that guides you to the “fresh start” you and your family deserve.

If you feel you don’t know enough about the roles of child support, alimony, property, credit or financing to bring yourself back to sound financial footing, my law firm can show you the way.
