He did not pay his child support for this month.
In Florida, yes unless he petitions the family court for modification of child support and prevails.
Yes. He is still required to pay.
Bankruptcy does not absolve someone of either their past child support (arrears) or future monthly payments. Only the family court can alter child support.
Yes, domestic support obligations are a "super priority". In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, child support debt receives special treatment because it is considered a priority debt. Priority debts are nondischargeable in bankruptcy. This means that if he owes any outstanding child support debt, it will not get wiped out by his bankruptcy discharge. As a result, filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will not eliminate his obligation to pay child support and make up any missed payments. Since child support is a priority debt, filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not affect his obligation to make your ongoing payments as they come due. As discussed above, if he falls behind on the child support payments, the automatic stay will usually not prevent a lawsuit to collect past due amounts. If you are having problems collecting you should call an attornry or the agency collecting the child support.
