civil claim judgement- is this a non dischargeable debt?
I am a creditor of a lady, who is claiming bankruptcy.
I am wondering if a judgement granted in civil court in Alberta is a dischargeable debt?
I am hoping that this is a non dischargeable debt so that she still owes me.
It matters not if you obtained a judgment. The debt is dischargeable unless it belongs to one of the following categories:
- Student loan debt
- Unpaid child support or alimony
- Civil judgment awarded for bodily harm, wrongful death or sexual assault
- Debt obtained by fraud. The onus would be on you to obtain a declaration from a Court that the debt was incurred fraudulently by the bankrupt
