Your Legal Issue:

Non-dischargeable Debts

Both Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy prohibit discharge of the following debts. Please note that this list is not comprehensive.

  • Child support, alimony, and other debts of this nature of support
  • Debts for personal injury or death caused by driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
  • Student loans, although these may be dismissed if you can prove it would be an undue hardship for you to repay
  • Any fines or penalties for violating the law, this includes traffic tickets and criminal restitution
  • Any debts you could not discharge in a previous bankruptcy that was dismissed due to fraud.

A lawsuit filed in the bankruptcy court which is related to the debtor's bankruptcy case is called an Adversary Hearing. Examples are complaints to determine the dischargeability of a debt and complaints to determine the extent and validity of liens.
