Most unsecured debts, such as credit cards, medical debts, repossessions, etc. can be eliminated in a chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, some debts will survive a chapter 7 bankruptcy.

The following are a few examples:

  • Most Taxes
  • Criminal Fines and Restitution
  • Domestic Support Obligations (Child Support, Alimony, etc.)
  • Student Loans (in most cases)
  • Debt Incurred Through Fraud
  • Damage Caused Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol
