, A licensed trustee said:

When your ex filed they were required to provide their trustee with a list of the people that they owed money to – if your ex didn’t put your name on that list then their trustee wouldn’t have notified you of the bankruptcy.

A couple of things you may want to know – if your ex owes you any kind of support from before the bankruptcy then they still owe you that money now. Bankruptcy does not eliminate support arrears.

If he owed you for equalization payments (balancing out family assets) then the debt has probably been eliminated by the bankruptcy, BUT you can go back to Family Court and see if the judge will award you something new based on your ex’s conduct.

If your ex owed you any money then you should probably talk to your family lawyer about your options now.
