The BAPCPA recognizes child support payments as financial support that is intended to maintain human life. Therefore, such monetary arrangements are highly prioritized and protected by the court system.
If your ex-spouse files for bankruptcy it is not a reason to worry. Bankruptcy will not eliminate child support payments, nor can it change the monthly amount you’re owed. What it will do is eliminate certain low-priority debt which will make it easier for your ex to make domestic support payments, including child support.
