Is child support discharged in bankruptcy?
No. Child support arrearages or future child support obligations are not discharged in either a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcy does allow for a debtors child support arrearages to be paid through the Chapter 13 plan. Please note the debtor will have to pay this particular debt at 100 percent in the Chapter 13 plan.
