Hi: Could you tell me if money owed to family maintenance could be wiped out by declaring bankruptcy? I understand taxes are but not sure if family maintenance is. A family member is caught between a rock and a hard place.
The monthly rate is far in excess of his income and any time he works long hours to try to get ahead it is taken. Resulting in him not being able to save enough for a lawyer or even enough to be able to live or visit his kids. I would think that common sense would apply but it seems in this case it does not. A reply at your earliest convienience would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou for your time.
yours truly Barb
