Can Criminal Court Orders for restitution be discharged with Chapter 7?
Asked Oct 16, 2005, 11:41 AM
I was just notified by a Bankruptcy Court that an individual who has been ordered to pay restitution to me in both a CIVIL and CRIMINAL lawsuit has applied for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. She is presently paying on the criminal order so that she won't be returned to prison.
Is it possible to have either of these type debts discharged by filing Chapter 7?
Thank you, DJ
