bankruptcy and separation

My wife and I are considering separating. She has full title on our house (ie she owns it completely), so I would find a place of my own to rent. Part of our separation agreement would need to include my monthly contribution to help support our 2 kids.

If I declare bankruptcy after the separation agreement is signed, what would take precedence – the bankruptcy or the separation agreement?

This can be a complicated issue and the answer can depend on a number of things. You are best to contact a local trustee directly about this as this forum doesn’t allow us to explore sufficient background to be of any value.
