Bankruptcy Can Give You a Second Chance

The Bankruptcy Code was created to help debtors make a fresh start. Therefore, many types of judgments can be discharged by filing bankruptcy, including those involving:

  • Cars
  • Second mortgages
  • Credit card bills
  • Unpaid medical bills
  • Business debts
  • Personal debts
  • Certain personal injury lawsuits
  • Second and third mortgages moved in a Chapter 13 case
  • Deficiency from a short sale

Some types of judgments, however, are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. Nondischargeable debts include judgments involving criminal cases and personal injury judgments resulting from driving while intoxicated. To learn if your judgment can be eliminated by filing either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, speak to an experienced attorney at Simon Resnik Hayes LLP.
