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.
