You can, but it won’t help with either of these issues. Pensions are excluded from bankruptcy proceedings so your spouse can still try and attach to half of it as part of the divorce. Child and spousal support are also excluded from bankruptcy – only the Family Court may change a support order. Sorry, but bankruptcy is not the solution to these particular problems…
