The impact of bankruptcy on child support payments

Florida parents who owe child support may face financial challenges that can affect their ability to continue making scheduled payments at times. Bankruptcy is often promoted as a means of finding financial relief from unmanageable debts, but it is important to remember that debts in the nature of support, including child support payments or amounts that are in arrears, are not discharged in bankruptcy. Parents on either side of the issue may be concerned about the implications of bankruptcy in relationship to child support obligations.

Emancipation and other child support issues

Divorced Florida parents need to be cognizant of when child support ends so they aren't surprised when payments stop or extend beyond the child's eighteenth birthday. In most instances, child support ends either when the minor child graduates from high school or turns 18 if they graduate prior to reaching the age of majority. There are other events that might cause child support to terminate early.
