Does Bankruptcy Eliminate All of My Debts?

There are certain debts that will not be discharged through bankruptcy, and you will still be responsible for paying them back. These include alimony, back child support, and most tax debts. During the bankruptcy process, creditors can also challenge whether your debt to them should be eliminated, but this is rare and they need to convince the court why the debt should continue past bankruptcy. Student loans can usually not be discharged unless we can prove that repaying the loan would be too much of a burden on you, but the standard set by the court is difficult to meet. We can discuss all of these factors during your free consultation so you know exactly what can and cannot be eliminated.


I cannot speak highly enough of the honesty with which this law firm conducts business. Before hiring anyone else, call them and ask to speak to one of the attorneys.

They walked me through the legal process so there weren't surprises along the way. The reason that led me to them was unfortunate but I am so grateful to them for helping.
