Re: Is childsupport included

Generally child support cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. Back child support can be paid as part of a Chapter 13 repayment plan. I recommend that you have an experienced bankruptcy attorney review your financial situation and advise you as to whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 would be appropriate. We do a free initial consultation.
