What Debts Can Be Included in a Bankruptcy Filing?

Each person’s financial and debt picture is different, so it is important to discuss your situation in detail with a qualified lawyer. For many people in financial difficulty, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be used effectively to discharge, or completely get rid of, debts that include:

  • Credit card debt
  • Medical debt, including doctor bills and hospital bills
  • Personal loans
  • Finance company and payday loans
  • Some second mortgages and home equity lines of credit
  • Utility bills

For some consumers, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be used to discharge some debts and make favorable payment plans on other debts such as:

  • Mortgage arrears
  • Vehicle loans and missed car payments
  • Tax debts
  • Student loans

Where Is the Bankruptcy Court Located?

Bankruptcy filings are handled in United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, which is located at 801 North Florida Avenue in Tampa. More information is available at http://www.flmb.uscourts.gov/.
