Bankruptcy is one of the ways to declare your financial hardships. This can help people to get an opportunity to start afresh from scratch as most debts are often discharged when you file bankruptcy. There are two different types of bankruptcy - Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. While in both the cases, the court can discharge some of the debts, there are certain debts that cannot be discharged. Discharging your debts means you may not have to repay those debts off and the collectors cannot attempt to collect those debts from you.
With a proper bankruptcy case and an efficient lawyer, you can fight for discharging most of your debts. For that, our Fong Law Group attorneys can help you in the best possible way. If you are located in Monterey Park, California or in surrounding areas, then we can be really helpful to you.
Debts that cannot be discharged
While there are two types of bankruptcy that you can file to get rid of the debts and loans, there are certain debts that cannot be discharged. Regardless of whether you have filed for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, there are certain debts that you cannot put behind for moving on in your life, however these debts can be restructured. Some of the types of debt in bankruptcy that are not eligible for discharge are:
- The payment for supporting your child or payment of alimony
- The debts for any personal injury or death caused by the mistake of the debtor
- The payments or debts for intentionally causing harm or injuries to a property or a person
- Some of the types of taxes (unpaid)
- Any penalties or fines that you own to any of the government agencies
- Loans you have taken for studies (student loans)
- Debts for any cooperative or condo housing fees
- Unpaid fees of the attorneys for the support and custody of your child
- A house loan or car loan
Can the court revoke the discharges?
When it comes to taxes, the court can discharge some of the unpaid federal and state taxes if they are more than seven years old. At the same time, some of the discharges can also be revoked by the court under some circumstances. If a trustee or a creditor takes the matter to the court with some evidences or proofs to show why the discharge should be revoked, the court can take action and determine whether that should be done. For this, you need to have the best in class bankruptcy attorney or lawyer who can help you in building a stronger case with all the important documents provided to the court.
In such cases, it will not be easy to revoke any discharges. But you will have to take care of all the debts that are not included in the discharged list by the court through your bankruptcy filing.
