Unsecured debts in Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases
Most unsecured debts are dischargeable in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. These debts include credit card cards, consumer contracts, car notes, and home mortgages. A few debts are non-dischargeable in Chapter 7, and primarily relate to involuntary debts forced upon others (i.e. tort liability for an accident caused by DWI for example) and other violations of state or federal law. The difference between discharge and dischargeability in Chapter 7 bankruptcy has perplexed many debtors, because a naked right to wipe out a debt does not guarantee that the debt will be eliminated. Debtors must follow court rules precisely and sustain the burden of proof in many circumstances to successfully exercise the right to discharge debts.
