While a bankruptcy will release you from most of your debt, there are a few exceptions and child support is one of those. When a bankruptcy is filed child support is one of those debts that is not released by the filing of a bankruptcy. So you do not need to worry, if your ex-husband files for bankruptcy he will still owe the outstanding child support. If he does file for bankruptcy you should receive and information package listing you as a creditor and you will need to fill out a proof of claim. If you have any questions on how to do that you can contact the trustee that sends you that documentation.
