Additional facts are needed: You are an unsecured creditor in his bankruptcy but if the payments he was supposed to make are in the nature of alimony - the debt cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. Regardless of where the payments fall, you probably should be filing a complaint for modification to either amend an exisiting alimony order or create a new one so that you recevie the income the court decreed you entitled.
You should consult a lawyer some parts of the court order may not be dischargeable in bankruptcy.
