A bankruptcy stays on your credit history for 10 years. During that period you may be denied credit. Some debts may not be dischargeable in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy if a credit challenges them. These include:
. Debts you incurred by fraud
. Credit purchases over a certain amount in the sixty days prior to filing for bankruptcy
. Loans or cash advances over a certain amount in the sixty days prior to filing
. Debts you owe under a divorce settlement or decree, with certain exceptions.
