Things not covered under bankruptcy protection.

Here is a list of some debts not discharged in bankruptcyThe past several years have shown a strong resurgence in bankruptcy filings. 2010 brought on a 5 year high in filing. Bankruptcy is an option of last resort for millions of people who are clearly unable to meet their debts. It is a dramatic financial move that has serious, long term negative affects on your ability to favorably negotiate future financial issues. However, it also eliminates many of the debts that may be crushing your ability to live a minimally acceptable standard of living. As an individual you should review all options available before taking on the consequences and expense of bankruptcy.

Many people see bankruptcy as a fresh start, but they may not realize that bankruptcy protection does not eliminate all types of debts. The following is not an all-inclusive list, but rather an example, of some debts not discharged through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Consult a bankruptcy attorney for specifics relevant to your own individual situation.

-Back taxes up to 3 years old
-Alimony owed
-Child support
