Will bankruptcy get rid of all of my debts?

January 8, 2010

Chapter 7 bankruptcy wipes out most unsecured debts, but it does not get rid of all of your debts. If you successfully file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will still be responsible for:

  • Your most recent back taxes
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Most student loans
  • Government fines or penalties
  • Fraudulent debt
  • Recent purchases of luxury goods of more than $550 bought within 90 days of filing for bankruptcy
  • Cash advance loans of $825 or more within 70 days of filing for bankruptcy
