    Personal Debts

    If you declare bankruptcy can you clear personal debts? I had heard of a woman who stood up and said she owed her brother-in-law money and it was cleared so I'm wondering how much of my ex's personal debt will get cleared if/when he files. Thank you in advance.

    I always thought that the only thing that can be cleared were debts that were on your credit report. It would be interesting to find the answer to this question because I definitely owe money to some people.
