Mr. J. Thomas Black's answer Alimony is considered a "domestic support obligation" or DSO in bankruptcy. It is not dischargeable in bankruptcy. It is also considered a priority claim and entitled to distribution ahead of other claims. So there should be no change in your alimony payments by reason of a bankruptcy filing.
