Children\’s extra curricular activities effected?

January 24th, 2007 by Questions

I will be filing for bankruptcy. I am a single mother of two and have my children enrolled in some extra curricular activites which I pay for. Will I have to stop them from these activites if I file for bankruptcy. If their grandparents agree to continue to pay for these activites for them does this count as income to me ?

As an adult, you have the right to spend your money how ever you see fit – even if you file for bankruptcy. If you can afford to continue to make the payments for your childrens’ activities then you may certainly do so.

If the grandparents have offered to make those payments for the kids even better. It should not be treated as income by your trustee.

Before you file for bankruptcy make sure that you discuss this with your trustee – they will confirm what I am telling you.

Good luck sorting things out.
