Overall, we can see that the job of the bankruptcy trustee is a balancing act. They do not only have to keep the interests of the creditors in mind, but it is also their duty to provide assistance in the smooth performance of the debtor's plan. In the United States of America, there is an organization "the United States Trustee" that appoints all these trustees.
Most spousal support and child support orders qualify as domestic support obligations. Thus, spousal and child support responsibilities cannot be eliminated in bankruptcy. Moreover, a person will not receive an order of discharge from the bankruptcy judge until all domestic support obligations are current.
So now the consumer would then know the advantages and disadvantages of declaring bankruptcy. Yet it seems merely another expense for an already financially stressed individual.
