Your Debts in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

The idea behind Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to provide debtors with a fresh financial start. In that vein, most types of debt are discharged (wiped out) at the end of a successful Chapter 7 bankruptcy. But not all debts are discharged in Chapter 7. If a debt survives, you'll still owe it, in full, at the end of your bankruptcy.

Below you'll find articles outlining which debts are and are not discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, as well as articles specifically addressing some of the more common types of debt -- credit card debt, medical bills, and more.
