Divorcing Debt

November 5, 2015

Attorney, Heather Cherepkai litigated a family law case in which the client, a single dad with limited income and sole provider of his daughter, received a judgment against him from a debt his ex-wife had incurred.
Heather objected to the Final Judgment and argued it before the court.  After hearing her argue that the husband was not liable for the ex-wife's debt, the court agreed and ruled that the debt was only applicable to the ex-wife, resulting in a dismissal.

By removing this from his credit, the client was able to buy his very first house for him and his daughter.

Great work, Heather!
