What is bankruptcy and will it wipe out all of my debts?

By Mock Webware |

Bankruptcy is the legal process in which a judge and court trustee examine a person or business’ assets and liabilities who are insolvent and decide whether to discharge their debts, which makes them no longer legally required to pay them. There are certain debts that might not be discharged in bankruptcy, such as tax liens, student loans, back child support, and debts obtained through fraud.
