Hi JACustomer,
Child support gets listed on Schedule E (Creditors Holding Unsecured Priority Claims). It is a Domestic Support obligation, which you should find at the top of the list on the first page.

then does that mean that a car is a secured deat and what is the priority of this over back taxes
Expert:  cfortunato replied 5 years ago.

Thank you for accepting my answer!

Yes - a car loan is Secured Debt, and belongs on Schedule D.

Domestic Support obligation debt has a higher priority than Tax debt. Domestic Support obligation debt's priority is #1, and Tax debt's priority is #8. Bankruptcy Stat. 507(A).

if the car meets the exemption amount where does it go we are keeping it and paying it off?
Expert:  cfortunato replied 5 years ago.
the car loan goes on Schedule D (Secured Debts), even if you are planning on continuing to pay the car loan.
