It depends on which debts are discharged in your bankruptcy. There are several types of debts, such as student loans, which consistently persist through bankruptcy. Moreover, you may be liable even for debts that traditionally are discharged, such as credit card debts, where there is even of bad faith and manipulativeness on your part, i.e. you racked up thousands in credit card debt in the days before filing for bankruptcy.

How long are you liable for a credit card debt?

As a responsible cardholder, you are generally liable for any credit card debt up to the statute of limitations as established within your state. This does not prevent a debt collector from continuing to pursue older debts, but it does generally prevent judgments on old debts as long as you advise the creditor or court that the statute of limitations has expired. Debt collectors may still pursue debt collection even beyond the statute of limitations.

What can not be filed on by chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Items obtained through fraud, child support, court ordered restituion and federal/state taxes (off the top of my head). ALL debts must be listed because you are swearing that you have listed all debts. If there are assets in the case, some of your debts will be paid, therefore, the Courts need to know of ALL of your debts, so you list EVERYTHING. However, some debts are non-dischargable such as: Items obtained through fraud; Domestic Support Obligations; Taxes that are less than 3 years old; Student Loans; Debts incurred in the process of a crime (such as a DUI accident). It should also be noted that there is a 90 day presumptive period. Any debt incurred within 90 days prior to filing a Bankruptcy is presumptively fraudelent. Any debt incurred with the intention of filing Bankruptcy or without intention of repayment is presumed fraudulent.
