X is for Ex-Spouse

I had to take liberties on this letter, since I couldn’t figure out how to make x-ray fit into a bankruptcy context.

If you have an ex-spouse, any alimony or child support awarded to your ex-spouse will not be discharged in your bankruptcy. However, it is possible to discharge debt from a property division. If you have a joint debt with your ex-spouse which you were made responsible for in the divorce, it can still be enforced by the ex-spouse in family court after the bankruptcy is over.

Lastly, the #1 way the United States Trustee catches people hiding income or assets is from an ex-spouse. So make sure your lawyer knows everything. The last thing you want is for your ex to show up at your 341 meeting to spill the beans.
