Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: What Happens If You Don’t Do It Right?


Most of those who file for bankruptcy expect that most of their debts can be wiped out. Unfortunately, some debts cannot be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. When debts are considered nondischargeable, the creditor can continue collecting from the debtor even when bankruptcy has been filed.


First of all, make sure to follow procedures and file for bankruptcy properly. Failure to follow the procedures and rules for bankruptcy may lead to denial of a Chapter 7 petition or leave you with debt that could have been discharged but wasn’t.


The debtor will have to challenge discharging the debts that are listed in the 19 categories and the creditor may object to it. If the court agrees to the creditor's claim, the debt may not be discharged.


In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there is a need to abide by the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and the debtor needs to know that they do not have all the rights to debt discharge. Section 727(a) has listed some of the reasons why debt discharge may be denied. Most of the reasons for denial involve the debtor's compliance with the rules and procedures of bankruptcy. Failure to follow certain bankruptcy rules may mean an objection to the whole Chapter 7 discharge. If the court rules that the discharge be denied, there is a big possibility that none of the debts will be discharged including those that have been originally considered dischargeable.


Congress has identified some debts that are not eligible for discharge based on its nature. These debts may have been incurred due to unlawful conduct.  Most of the debts listed in the 19 categories are outright nondischargeable unless there are exceptional circumstances.


Examples of debts deemed automatically nondischargeable include:   


  • Taxes listed in the bankruptcy laws;

  • Alimony/child support/spousal debts;

  • Penalties and fines due to government agencies;

  • Debts due to child or a former spouse that arose out of separation or divorce;

  • Cooperative housing or condo fees;

  • Child custody and support;

  • And other court fines and penalties incurred.


Some debts are always nondischargeable and no court hearing is needed to exempt them to become dischargeable. If the debtor can provide highly unusual and exceptional circumstances, this would be the only time that the policy can be changed.


Some reasons why the court may deny a Chapter 7 discharge include:


  • Incomplete personal financial management course attendance;

  • Lack of required tax documents;

  • Lack of records or books (due to being destroyed or hidden);

  • Defrauding creditors by transferring or hiding property;

  • Violation of court order;

  • And other fraudulent acts during the filing of the bankruptcy case.



If you plan to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is best to consult a bankruptcy lawyer to determine your chances of success in terms of having as much of your debts discharged or minimized as possible. A bankruptcy attorney can provide advice regarding your debts and can greatly assist with the process of filing for  bankruptcy.  


The importance of properly filing for dischargeable debts and adhering to the provisions of the bankruptcy law cannot be stressed enough. A debtor must know these provisions and make sure to comply with all obligations and a bankruptcy attorney can help immensely.
