There are many items which will not be discharged in a bankruptcy:

  • certain taxes and liens
  • debts for spousal or child support or alimony 
  • debts owed to a former spouse or child if they arose out of a divorce or separation 
  • debts to government agencies for fines and penalties
  • student loans (with a few rare exceptions)
  • debts for personal caused by the debtor’s operation of a motor vehicle while intoxicated
  • debts owed to certain tax-advantaged retirement plans
  • debts for certain condominium or cooperative housing fees (such as homeowners association fees)
  • attorney fees in child custody and support cases, and
  • court fines and penalties, including criminal restitution.

You should contact a bankruptcy attorney.
