If I’ve Filed For Bankruptcy, Do I Still Pay Child Support And Alimony?

By Diana N. Fredericks

The answer is likely yes. Typically, domestic support obligations such as alimony and child support are not terminated as a result of bankruptcy. In other words, those obligations survive the bankruptcy. However, it may be that the bankruptcy provides grounds for a modification based upon changed circumstances.
