Generally, all debts are discharged. However, there are exceptions to the discharge. They include student loans, alimony, criminal fines and penalties, and certain tax debt. If the fines and costs are related to a criminal matter, they may be included in the exception. If it is simply a civil contract dispute, all elements of such a debt would be included in the discharge.
