Can You File Bankruptcy If You Owe Child Support?

Yes, you can still file bankruptcy if you owe child support. Some mistakenly believe that owing child support is bar to filing bankruptcy. Not true. Domestic support obligations cannot be eliminated (discharged). Child support arrears can be repaid over time through a Chapter 13 Plan of Reorganization. In fact, unpaid child support that is properly scheduled in a plan cannot be enforced by contempt incarcerations and license suspension. If your license is already suspended, a bankruptcy can reinstate your driving privileges. This is possible because the suspension is an action to enforce a debt. This applies to jail sentences too.
