If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, you need to determine if you are eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and if it is the right option for you. If you have little or irregular monthly income and most of your debt is unsecured debt from medical bills or credit cards, then Chapter 7 might be the solution to your debt problems.
Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows debtors to discharge the following types of unsecured debts:
- Spousal support or alimony
- Child support
- Certain taxes
- Court-ordered fines
- Victim restitution
- Debts for willful or malicious injuries
- Most government-funded educational loans
- Personal injury debts for DUI accidents
- Certain condominium or cooperative housing fees
