What Debts Will I Still Have to Pay Back After Bankruptcy?
When you are granted a chapter 7 bankruptcy, that frees you from paying back most unsecured debts, including credit card balances, personal and payday loans, repossession deficiency balances, most legal judgments, and even some tax obligations.
While chapter 7 bankruptcy discharges most debt, there are still some debts that may not be discharged. These include any debts left off of the bankruptcy paperwork, alimony and child support payments, fines and penalties owed to government institutions, government-funded student loans, and debts owed due to either malicious injuries to persons or properties or personal injuries caused while operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
The guidance of an experience bankruptcy attorney will help you understand your rights and obligations under the bankruptcy code, ensure all of your paperwork is filled out correctly, and make sure you get the maximum relief from your debts.
