If what you mean is can back owed child support payments be discharged in bankruptcy: NO. Regardless of how old the child is now. on the other hand if you mean to be included in the repayment schedule for a chapter 13 then yes. Child support arrearages can sometimes be included in bankruptcy. This pertains to arrearages only and not to current support due. A bankruptcy petition cannot override a court order of support and if arrearages are allowed to be included in a 13 the arrearages must be paid in full, not a percentage thereof, as is possible with unsecured creditors.

How does bankruptcy stop foreclosure?

The bankruptcy stay prevents any action by the lender until the BK is finalized. Be advised that a mortgage lender can petition the court to have said stay lifted so foreclosure proceedings can continue. That rarely happens though. Unless the debtor reaches an agreement with the mortgage holder to reafirm the lending agreement the foreclosure will likely occur after the BK discharge.

Is there a statute of limitations on collecting child support?

Some states do not have any SOL's on child support when a court order is in affect and a state's deparatment of social or family issues is involved. Other states have statutes that specify SOL on child support by the years that are affected. Example: In MO. child support arrearages are recoverable if an order is in place and not more than 10 years has expired from each birthday. For a 1-year-old arrearages are collectible before the child reaches ll, 2-year-old until 12 and so forth. The legal age of majority for MO. is 18 therefore it is conceivable that arrearages could be collected until the person in question reaches the age of 28. All such laws in any state depend upon there being a valid child support in affect and the individual circumstances.

If you were with a woman one time and she became pregnant are you obligated to pay child support if you do not want the child?

Yes, the issue of a biological father not wanting the woman to bear the child is irrelevant and will not affect his legal obligation to support that child. Both parents of a minor child are legally obligated to financially support that child until he or she reaches the stated age of majority.
