You may not discharge alimony or child support obligations as part of your bankruptcy. Instead, you may set up a planned payment of any amounts owed in arrears (past due) if you file for Chapter 13. Child support enforcement and court orders regarding alimony payments for a person filing for bankruptcy can be more complex, as precautions need to be made to guarantee that no monies owed are discharged. Our law firm is knowledgeable regarding the handling of these types of debts and can provide you with sound legal advice regarding your rights and your responsibilities as a debtor and your rights under the law.
