Is Child Support Counted as Income in Bankruptcy? What about Child Support I Pay?

If you are filing for bankruptcy and receiving child support, it is considered income. But only if you are actually receiving it. If you are supposed to be receiving it but are actually not, then it should not count as money that you have coming in each month. Likewise, if you are ordered to pay child support but are not, then it does not belong as an expense if you are filing for bankruptcy.
