What would you like to do?
Can you file bankruptcy on back child support?
You can file a chpt. 13 so that you can catch up and pay the arrears through the chpt. 13 payment plan. However, child support payments MUST be 100% PAID IN FULL. The only exception would be if the person OWED the child support AGREES to accept a different/lower amount.

Answer No, child support arrears cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.
Answer No. Child support is not dischargeable in either federal or state bankruptcy.
Answer No. Section 523(a)(5) of the Bankruptcy Code prohibits debtors from receiving a discharge of spousal and child support obligations. If yuou are be…hind on payments, you can spread out the payments over time in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Answer No, you cannot even touch child support, afraid you have to pay, pay, pay and pay.
Child support cannot, and will not be discharged in BK Its not like your ignoring your responsibilities (guess if that is the child support or the children themselves)… makes them go away. I feel sorry for your kids though.
No. And the idea you would is morally reprehensible to society. Do you really want to financially bankrupt on your kids too?
No. The specifically does not allow BK to discharge your obligation to your kids. You actually want to go bankrupt on your kids?
No....that debt is not dischargeable in BK, (as asked and answered at least a zillion times here already). And many, many methods are available to collect it that aren't avail… to other debts. It will be paid. Oh, it isn't just a debt to the State....it's too your kids...not only are you a degenerate deadbeat dad, and require others to support your kids (likely in ways other than financial)...you are a deadbeat to society, requiring the State to pay your personal obligations. DON'T LIKE IT...TOUGH...IT'S BOTH TRUE AND THE WAY MANY OF THE NON DEGENERATES, who take care of their own responsibilities and can stand by their own actions, (which clearly you didn't and still don't). THEY ARE PROBABLY WELL JUSTIFIED IN THINKING IT IS A PITY YOU ACTUALLY HAD THE ABILITY TO REPRODUCE TOO.... Again, don't like it...TOUGH.....DEADBEAT DAD KINDA' LOSSES ANY RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION ARGUMENT AT THE START. Pay your child support.
No. No aspect of child support will be discharged or lessend by BK
Nope..in any way. Guess you just have to be responsible for your kids. Pity their parent would want to go bankrupt financially on them too, fortunately society doesn't al…low it...apparently, just by denying responsiblity for his actions he's already shown himself bankrupt in every other way - like morally or intelligence.....but that the laws can't stop.
When you file for bankruptcy, you are required to list ALL debts you owe. However, child support or alimony (called Domestic Support) are NOT discharged in a bankruptcy. In …a Chapter 7 - this debt survives your discharge. In a 13 - you probably can pay back the arrears over time, but you have to make the required monthly payment to the Child support agency for current support AND the trustee payment for the back support. I would seek the advice of an attorney that specializes in Bankruptcy to see if this is an option for you.
Can you file your child support rears in a bankrupcy?
No. Child support is usually non-dischargeable.
Child support is not discharged in bankruptcy.
... prevent ... Bankruptcy is a Federal process and has no effect on child support. Bankruptcy does not dismiss child support debts.

Once should be enough. "Back" (retroactive) child support is typically awarded (or not) with the entry of the first order for current (ongoing) support.
no it will stay with you forever like student loans
