What debts from my divorce are dischargeable in a bankruptcy?

Generally, debts from a divorce are not dis-chargeable in bankruptcy. For example, a domestic support obligation, such as alimony or child support is not dischargeable. Debts incurred in connection with a divorce are usually not dischargeable. For example, if you're required to pay your ex-spouse's attorney's fees, that is not going to be dischargeable in bankruptcy. However, your own attorneys fees, the debt that you owe your own attorney generally, would be dischargeable in bankruptcy.
