Will bankruptcy get rid of all debt?

Not necessarily. There are certain kinds of debts that are nondischargeable, including most taxes, fines, and penalties owed to governmental units, student loans, domestic support obligations, any debt that was incurred through fraud, debts that are reaffirmed in Chapter 7, debts that are maintained and cured in Chapter 13, and debts that are not listed in your bankruptcy paperwork. Bankruptcy will typically discharge debts such as credit cards, medical bills, personal loans, secured debts (typically mortgages or auto loans) for which the property is given back to or taken back by the creditor.
