Does Bankruptcy Remove All My Debt?

Post  Admin on Mon Sep 21, 2009 11:22 am

It is important to realize that bankruptcy does not necessarily allow you to avoid paying back every kind of debt. For public policy reasons, several kinds of debts are specifically excluded from discharge in bankruptcy. The most common debts which cannot be discharged are child support obligations, spousal support, criminal restitution and fines. Some other types of debts are dischargeable in some circumstances but not others – for example, debts from taxes, bad checks and the fraudulent use of a credit card may not be erased. Student loans are sometimes but very rarely discharged, and if they are discharged, it does not happen automatically. The details of your own particular situation should be discussed with a lawyer or other knowledgeable person before you begin bankruptcy proceedings.
