What kinds of debts can’t you eliminate in bankruptcy?

There are some debts that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.  That does not mean that we cannot assist you with dealing with these debts, but just means that we cannot outright eliminate (or discharge) those debts.  We will discuss your best course of action at your free consultation.  These types of debts include but are not limited to:

  • Child or spousal support
  • Student loans
  • Tax debts that are less than three (3) years old or were not assessed in the last two (2) years, or any kind of trust tax, such as sales tax or payroll taxes, among others
  • Debts related to fraud or criminal fines and fees
  • Certain other debts that we will discuss with you as part of our representation
