St. Louis child support is an example of a debt that is considered non-dischargeable (in other words, a debt that cannot be knocked out) is child support (or any amount of child support that you have fallen behind on). This means that regardless of which chapter of bankruptcy you file with a St. Louis bankruptcy attorney, this debt will continue to exist after your case is finished.Only $300 in Upfront Fees for a Chapter 13
However, it is possible to include the amount of child support arrearage (i.e. the payments you are delinquent on) in a St. Louis Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In this type of bankruptcy, your repayment plan will include the arrearage and spread the payments out over a period of three to five years. At the end of the plan, you will be current and no longer in arrears.
