Can I Get Rid of Fast Food Debt in a Bankruptcy?

Question: I have a ton of credit card debt A lot of it was run up over a bunch of years when we ate out all the time with our kids at many fast food restaurants. Can I get rid of this credit card debt from these restaurants by filing for bankruptcy?

Answer: The good news is that this debt should be fully dischargeable in bankruptcy so you won't have to pay it. Many Americans eat fast food very often and we here in the state of Georgia are no different. In fact, we see many clients have spent a lot of money on restaurants – some of them fancy (like Italian, French, Japanese, Korean & German restaurants) and some not so very fancy like McDonald's, Subway, Starbucks, Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Dunkin' Donuts, Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), Chick-Fil-A, SONIC Drive-Ins, Domino's Pizza, Panera Bread, Arby's, and Jack in the Box.

So, no matter what type of food purchases you put on a credit card, they should be wiped out in a bankruptcy filing here in Georgia!
