What are Dischargeable Debts?

Dischargeable debts are debts that you currently have that you may no longer be required to pay once your bankruptcy case is complete.  Generally, you make some financial concession to discharge such debts.  Some examples of dischargeable debts include:

  • Home payments
  • Vehicle payments
  • Other outstanding loans

There are many debts that are non-dischargeable, such as student loans, child support and alimony payments, and certain unpaid taxes.  These debts will still be the responsibility of the debtor once the bankruptcy process is terminated.
