Does Bankruptcy Stop Income Execution For Child Support Arrears?

No, your wages will continue to be garnished for child support arrears even when the automatic stay goes into effect, and after the bankruptcy is completed, if you still have child support debt outstanding.

That doesn’t mean that bankruptcy can’t help you though.

If you are behind on support obligations because your debt load is too high and your income isn’t likely to increase anytime soon, bankruptcy can help you clear the other payments that are tying up your income so you can get current on your child support payments.

If credit cards and other debts are making it impossible for you to take care of your family, bankruptcy may be a solution that’s right for you.
