Can I Stop Paying Alimony After I Receive my Chapter 7 Discharge?

Video Transcription: Question Can I Stop Paying Alimony After I Receive My Chapter 7 Discharge? Answer You are not allowed to stop paying alimony or child support at any time. In the bankruptcy code these things fall under one term and its called domestic support obligation. They are given extra status in Chapter 7 bankruptcy though you are required in order to complete a successful Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Any current obligations for child support or alimony must continue to be paid every single month while you are in bankruptcy and after your bankruptcy is complete I would also advise you to continue making those payments. If not you could be in violation of a court order and subject to being thrown into jail.
