If I file for bankruptcy, do I still have to pay child support?

This is a very common question for both noncustodial and custodial parents alike. Child support payments are not dischargeable; therefore, you will still be responsible for paying them even after filing for bankruptcy. If you continually fail to make child support payments, the custodial parent could take action to garnish your wages.

If you are unable to keep pace with your debts and financial obligations, and are concerned about how a bankruptcy filing might bear upon your rights and responsibilities as a parent, we can help. Contact the Milwaukee bankruptcy lawyers of the DeLadurantey Law Office, LLC, at 414-377-0518 to schedule an initial consultation.
