Unforgivable Debts

Posted By: Dr. Frugal in Credit on 08/15/2007 at 14:14:18

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.
