Will I still have to pay my divorce attorney? 4 Answers as of August 27, 2010

I recently went through a really bad divorce. My wife ended up getting a large settlement and the divorce, overall, was extremely costly. I just lost my job and now my the debt that I had is growing out of control. If I file for bankruptcy, will my divorce attorney sue me to collect the money that I owe her?
