It depends. Does any of the debt you have indicate that you or anyone you is required to support are likely to become a public charge? And by that, I mean do you have the medical debt to a public hospital?

Probably it will have no effect. But immigration law has become a specialty, and you would do well to consult an immigration lawyer.

Bankruptcy doesn't directly affect the naturalization process but naturalization requires good moral character. If your debts are from lavish spending or questionable business ventures, that might be used to argue that you do not have a good moral character.
