Debts Not Covered by Bankruptcy


The New York Bankruptcy Litigation Blog has posted an article about what debts remain unresolved should you file for bankruptcy.

Exceptions include child support, alimony payments, “certain cooperative housing fees”, “debts brought about by intentional injury or property damage caused by the debtor” (this also includes personal injury debts caused by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol), and any debt owed to a form of a government agency ( such as tax claims and penalties or fines).

If you are filing, or considering filing, for bankruptcy, feel free to contact us for assistance. We don’t file bankruptcies but often times what causes a consumer to consider bankruptcy is dealing with abusive debt collectors which we can sue so sometimes this can be a better option that actually filing for bankruptcy.

Another resource for you is to join our Facebook Fan Page – Alabama Consumer Protection Attorneys where we share useful information about the same types of issues that we cover in this blog.
