Debt that is Nondischargeable

By filing a bankruptcy case appropriate to your circumstances, some debt may be discharged. Unfortunately, there are some debts that are nondischargeable must be dealt with. They include:

  • Child support and spousal support
  • Debt related to fraud
  • Some personal injury judgments
  • Some tax debt
  • Student loans

Classifying Debt

When our Los Angeles bankruptcy lawyer evaluates your case, we can help you understand which debts can be discharged and which must be addressed with a payment plan. For example, if you are still paying off a student loan, owe monthly child support, have excessive credit card debt, or money owed due to a medical procedure, you may qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Through a Chapter 7 the credit card debt could be wiped away, the child support and student loans are nondischargeable and must be paid over a reasonable payment plan.

Even a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be a great benefit at reorganizing debt and making a feasible repayment plan for a period of three to five years. At the end of that time, significant debt can still be discharged and you will be caught up on your priority obligations and be ready for a fresh start.

Every case is unique and there are consequences to any debt relief plan. But honest homeowners deserve a fresh start. A consultation with our Los Angeles bankruptcy attorneys is the first step towards freedom.
