Bankruptcy And Child Support Basics

Child support payments are not dischargeable through bankruptcy. However, bankruptcy does provide an important measure of debt relief for people who need to pay child support arrears.

By filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your child support arrears can be restructured into a manageable payment plan. Child support arrears take priority over credit card debt, medical debt and other debts you may be facing and therefore will get paid before and often instead of these debts, which are then discharged.

Filing for bankruptcy also puts an immediate end to wage garnishments for child support arrears and other creditor actions, putting more money in your pocket and allowing you to maintain your current child support payments and other obligations.

If you are facing debt from back child support and other types of debt, our experienced bankruptcy lawyers are here to help. We have a proven record of success helping people throughout the Chicago area realize their debt relief goals.
