One of the biggest questions that people have in bankruptcy concerns what types of debts can be discharged. Generally speaking, unsecured debts are dischargeable in bankruptcy while secured liens (those backed by collateral) must be paid by the value of their collateral. Some debts are impossible to get rid of, like child support. Others, like recent tax obligations and student loans are extremely difficult to get rid of. Common debts that are dischargeable include:
- Credit card debt
- Payday loans
- Retail charge cards
- Overdrafts at banks
- Medical bills
- Motor vehicle surcharges
Chapter 13 can discharge divorce equitable distribution obligations and judicial and civil penalties (motor vehicle fines).
