How does bankruptcy affect my divorce?

Bankruptcy affects the divorce either by staying the divorce, which means that there's an automatic stay if the bankruptcy action is filed during the pendency of the divorce, which can be set aside, or if the divorce is complete, bankruptcy will not discharge alimony, child support, or other support related orders. Nor will the equitable distribution be discharged in bankruptcy.
