Will Bankruptcy Wipe Out All My Debts?

Yes, with some exceptions. BK will not normally wipe out:

  1. money owed for child support, alimony, fines, and some taxes;
  2. debts not listed on your BK petition;
  3. loans you got by knowingly giving false information to a creditor, who reasonably relied on the info to make you the loan
  4. debts resulting from “willful and malicious” harm
  5. student loans owed to a school or government body, unless the court decides that payment would be an undue hardship
  6. mortgages and liens which are not paid in the BK case (but BK will wipe out your obligation to pay any additional money if the property is not sold by a creditor).
