Though filing for bankruptcy can be the ultimate recourse for some individuals who have been left with overwhelming debts, people should understand that in some instances there are debts that may still remain that debtors need to settle. Below are the following debts that cannot be relieved by a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing:
- Debts incurred from other parties claiming a drunk driving injury
- Any debts that were not included after filing for bankruptcy
- Unsettled criminal fines or any unsettled traffic fines
Individuals who have these kinds of debts should know they are obliged to settle them in full, whether they filed for bankruptcy or not.
