CAN I ELIMINATE ALL OF MY DEBT THROUGH BANKRUPTCY?

IS IT OK TO STOP PAYING ALIMONY AND CHILD SUPPORT DURING BANKRUPTCY?

No. The 2005 changes in the bankruptcy laws require a debtor to remain current on all domestic support obligations such as alimony or spousal maintenance, and child support, throughout the duration of the bankruptcy. If a debtor falls behind on his or her domestic support obligations during bankruptcy, the bankruptcy could be dismissed or converted from a Chapter 13 to a Chapter 7 proceeding. Click here for more information on filing bankruptcy in Utah.
