Bankruptcy Discharges Most Judgments

If a creditor sues you for a debt, a court can issue a judgment ordering you to pay the amount or even garnish your wages to repay the debt. The good news is, there is a way to stop these actions by filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy can help wipe out judgments for a majority of lawsuits, including those stemming from personal loans, credit card debts, medical bills, and more. The same debts that are dischargeable through bankruptcy can also be discharged whether or not there is a judgment attached.

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 domestic support obligations (child support or alimony), 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 Resnik Hayes Moradi LLP.
