Bankruptcy Overview

Title 11 of the United States Code (the Bankruptcy Code), a federal law allows honest debtors to discharge their debts and start life afresh by filing for bankruptcy. While there are many chapters in the Bankruptcy Code, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the most commonly used ones. There are a total of six chapters described in the Bankruptcy Code.

Bankruptcy gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor…a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.  A bankruptcy discharge achieves this goal by freeing a debtor of specific debts and prohibiting creditors from ever moving to recover those debts.

Will bankruptcy protect me from my creditors?

Bankruptcy will discharge most of your debts and give you a fresh start. The following debts however will not be discharged by bankruptcy; taxes; spousal and child support; debts arising out of willful misconduct and or malicious misconduct by the debtor; liability for injury or death from driving while intoxicated; non-dischargeable debts from a prior bankruptcy; student loans; criminal fines and penalties and forfeitures. It does not discharge the debtor from any debt incurred for money, property, services, or an extension, renewal, or refinancing of credit, to the extent obtained by false pretenses, a false representation, or actual fraud, other than a statement respecting the debtor’s or an insider’s financial condition.

Once a debt is discharged in bankruptcy, the creditor cannot enforce the debt against you nor start any collection activity. You need not pay that debt.
