Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 handle debt differently. Chapter 7 can eliminate most types of debt, such as personal loans, credit card bills, car repossession deficiencies, medical bills, department store bills, even utility bills. Chapter 13 will restructure the debt you have and eliminate most of your debt through your Chapter 13 repayment plan.

There are, however, certain types of debts that cannot be discharged through bankruptcy. These types of debts include:

  • Some Income Taxes
  • Child support
  • Spousal support payments
  • Most student loans
  • Court-ordered fines or penalties
  • Restitution owed to injury victims or crime victims
