Do I still have to pay child support if I file for bankruptcy?

Whether you do or do not have custody of your children, it is important to understand how bankruptcy affects child support payments. Bankruptcy does not discharge child support payments; therefore, the payer is still responsible for making these payments. If one files for bankruptcy and fails to make required child support payments, the custodial parent has the right to pursue the unpaid support.

When faced with financial troubles, it is important to act sooner rather than later as a delay will only serve to worsen the situation. Contact the Bradford Law Office, PLLC, at 919-758-8879 today to schedule a consultation with a knowledgeable Raleigh bankruptcy lawyer.
