Understanding What Constitutes Dischargeable Debt

After successfully applying for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, an individual’s unsecured debts may be discharged. In such cases, a copy of the final order of discharge informs all creditors that applicable debts have been released, and no further attempt to collect those debts should be taken. Furthermore, creditors are informed that should they continue to try and collect any debt owed, they may be subject to litigation. With these debts discharged, individuals are granted a fresh start and are able to regain financial control over their lives.

The attorneys at Hong Law, PLC understand the lasting impact of debt on the lives of individuals and families alike; we may consult with you to help you understand the best legal options for your particular situation.

Dischargeable Debts Under Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

  • Medical bills

Removing these debts can be central to an individual gaining financial independence once again. The lawyers at Hong Law, PLC understand just how difficult and confusing bankruptcy can be.
