Is the cost of my divorce trial affected by filing bankruptcy?
December 3rd, 2014 by Questions
My former spouse was awarded custody following trial. I was ordered to pay costs and child support. I am paying child support but was forced to declare bankruptcy. This resulted in the cost order being redundant. Now I have been served papers to return to court for the judge to determine what portion of the costs were related to child support. My ex is claiming all is related to child support.
It is my understanding the costs attributed to pursuing child support survive bankruptcy but not the costs for pursing custody.
Thank you for your assistance
