Are all debts that were incurred before the bankruptcy discharged in Chapter 7?

Posted on June 1, 2013. Filed under: Chapter 7 Bankruptcy | Tags: |

No. There are a number of types of debts that are excepted from the discharge given in Chapter 7. Among the most common are debts for certain taxes, fraudulently incurred credit card debt, family support obligations (including child support and alimony), and most student loans. A debtor with debts of these kinds can still receive a discharge of other debts, but, after the bankruptcy the “excepted” debts will still be owing (less any payments made through the bankruptcy itself). Additionally, Chapter 7 debtors who engage in certain misconduct connected with the bankruptcy (like failing to disclose assets) may be denied a discharge entirely. Other types of debt (family support and student loans, for example) are excepted from discharge in Chapter 13 as well as Chapter 7.
