Nondischargeable Debts

What debts can't you get rid of? Most unsecured debts can be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy or after completion of a Chapter 13 repayment plan. However, some debts cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, meaning you can't get rid of them – they’re non-dischargeable.

  • Bankruptcy testimonial

    "I have to tell you how grateful I am for the way you handled my Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You were understanding, but never compromising on professionalism. I can tell you that I interviewed a number of bankruptcy attorneys before I, thankfully, found you. Every one of them made themselves out to be the “savior” that a “loser” like me needed. I was looking for professional compassion, and I found those qualities in you. While you succeeded in making the arduous process of bankruptcy understandable, in the end, it’s all about results...and I never doubted that you would deliver. Again, thank you."

  • Bankruptcy testimonial

    "I called Sara not knowing very much about Bankruptcy. She helped me every step of the way. I had a lot of questions and she took the time to go through each of them with me. Her communication was great. If I called her she would always answer or call me right back. She worked around my schedule when we set up appointments. The entire process did not take very long at all. She is very organized and let's you know what is going on and what to expect every step of the way. Sara was great from start to finish. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer!"

  • Bankruptcy testimonial

    I hired Sara to be my attorney when I knew bankruptcy was one of the last options that I had, due to a new business that was started and mounting credit card debt. I was nervous, anxious, and quite frankly, terrified about the entire ordeal, as bankruptcy is certainly not a pleasant experience. However, after going through the process, I have to say that having a conscientious, knowledgeable attorney can lessen the more unpleasant, and unexpected aspects of getting through this process. Sara prepared my case well in advance of my court date; asked questions and collected the necessary information to ensure that my case was ready. She was always incredibly responsive and prompt when I had a question, and was quick to put any fears/apprehension I had at ease. On the date of my hearing, as I was waiting in the "waiting room" I was surprised by the number of attorneys/clients who were going over paperwork/questions that Sara and I had gone over weeks ago. As I sat in the room listening to the trustee go over other cases, again I was shocked to see that he was asking the other cases for more information/documentation as they were not properly prepared. when we were finally called, the Trustee looked through the paperwork and asked us a couple of questions to verify information and that was it. I can honestly say that having Sara, a trustworthy and knowledgeable attorney, made all the difference in the world for my bankruptcy case. I would highly recommend Sara if you are considering bankruptcy.
