Non-dischargeable debt in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy

Posted on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 at 2:12 pm    

Through the process of Chapter 7 bankruptcy, individuals living in Raleigh may be able to discharge many of the debts that brought them to their present financial circumstances. However, not all debts may be discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, including:

  • Unpaid taxes
  • Spousal and child support payments
  • Most student loans
  • Debt owed on tax-advantaged 401ks

Though these debts may be discharged under some exceedingly rare circumstances, they more often must be paid in full after the process of Chapter 7 bankruptcy has been concluded. However, these debts are usually restructured into more realistic repayment plans as part of the bankruptcy process.
