Debts Not Covered by Bankruptcy

Consumers considering bankruptcy should know what obligations bankruptcy does not cover. There are exceptions, but most domestic support obligations (including child support and maintenance) are not dischargeable. Debts incurred through fraud, most student loans, most taxes and debts resulting from willful and malicious injury to another or another’s property are also not dischargeable. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it is advisable to first consult an attorney who is knowledgeable in all aspects of bankruptcy law.
