Q:
My husband is filing bankruptcy because he doesn't want to pay court ordered attorney's fees to my lawyer. Is he allowed to do that?

A:

NO! Attorney's fee orders in marriage dissolution actions are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. So, he will not escape his responsibility to pay your attorney’s fees if he had agreed to do so or was ordered to do so by the court.  if your husband either agreed to or was ordered to pay your attorney’s fees.
