Could I declare money owed to attorney for divorce in bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy

Can you can discharge (eliminate) divorce attorney fees in bankruptcy?

My answer:

If it is for your attorney, generally yes, you can discharge it in bankruptcy. However, there are exceptions, for example, if the fees were ordered to be paid as a part of a divorce settlement. It is best for you to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to discuss this, because more facts are needed.

If you have questions regarding divorce and bankruptcy, it is important to consult with an experienced Bankruptcy attorney.
