Domestic Support Obligations

If you are in debt, you are still required to take care of your domestic support obligations, such as child support and alimony. These debts are generally non-dischargeable and cannot be eliminated by filing for bankruptcy. However, you have options, and by filing for bankruptcy you can free up some debt, which will allow you to fulfill your domestic support obligations.
