Does bankruptcy affect child support?

How does bankruptcy affect my child support payments?

Even though filing for bankruptcy will terminate or reduce your unsecured debts, past-due child support payments are not canceled and must be paid. In fact, in many Chapter 13 cases, making all child support payments is an essential requirement for the reorganization process to be completed. If the debtor flounders and does not pay all of his or her overdue child support, then he or she may face penalties.
