You can ask for a continuance on the divorce and custody cases, but since you’ve already filed for an extension, you may not get one. You should hire an attorney immediately if you’re planning to do so.
I do not know if you will have to pay your spouse anything on the vehicle, but it is a possibility, depending on the rest of any property settlement you and your spouse may make.
If you listed child support payments you did not make in your bankruptcy, it can certainly affect the discharge of your bankruptcy as well as a child support case against you.
Offers of settlement between parties are not admissible in court, so that should not be a problem for you. However, if settlement is possible, I encourage you to explore that avenue and have an attorney look over those agreements. Going to court is going to take a lot longer and cost a lot more money.
