Non-dischargeable Debts

Debts not Discharged in Chapter 7

Certain types of debts are not discharged in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.  Here is a list of non-dischargeable debts:

  • maintenance (a.k.a. "alimony")
  • child support
  • court fines and restitution
  • most tax liability
  • debts arising from fraud
  • debts owed for property damage caused by willful or malicious conduct
  • student loans, in most cases

Normally, after a Chapter 7 case is concluded, the creditor holding any such non-dischargeable debt will resume collections.  In some cases, non-dischargeable debt can be paid through a Chapter 13 plan.
