What Debts Cannot Be Discharged in Bankruptcy?
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
