All debts must be listed in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but certain types of debts can not be discharged (wiped out) in bankruptcy. For a full list of these debts, look at 11 U.S.C. Section 523 of the bankruptcy code. To see if any debt that you have is nondischargeable, I recommend that you discuss your financial situation with a Certified Specialist in Bankruptcy law - me.

If you are asking if there are debts which are not dischargeable in Chapter 7, the answer is yes. These are listed in bankruptcy code section 523, but include debts incurred by fraud, debts incurred through embezzlement or larceny, willful and malicious injury, certain tax debts (primarily those less than 3 years old), restitution, student loans (unless one can prove, after trial, "undue hardship") any domestic support obligations, and more. You should consult with a bankruptcy attorney about whether certain debts are dischargeable.
