What Debts Are Not Dischargeable In Bankruptcy

    Certain debts are not dischargeable in bankruptcy, meaning they cannot be eliminated through the bankruptcy process. These non-dischargeable debts include:

    1. Most student loan debt
    2. Child support and alimony obligations
    3. Most tax debt
    4. Debts from fraud, embezzlement, or willful or malicious injury
    5. Debts for personal injury caused by driving under the influence
    6. Debts for fines or penalties imposed by government agencies
    7. Debts for willful or malicious property damage
    8. Debts for willful or malicious conversion of property
    9. Debts for restitution or a criminal fine included in a sentence on the debtor’s conviction of a crime.

    It’s important to note that these exceptions vary by state and by type of bankruptcy case. In some cases, certain exceptions can be challenged and discharged through bankruptcy. Consult a bankruptcy attorney to determine which of your debts may be dischargeable in bankruptcy.
