When people are filing for bankruptcy because they have a great deal of medical debt they may wonder if they can just list their medical debt in their bankruptcy petition and not list out their other debt. Sadly, you cannot pick and choose which debt to list when filing a bankruptcy petition in the state of Utah.
Even though people may be filing for bankruptcy solely based upon their expensive medical bills, they must include all their debt when filing their bankruptcy petitions. People who file for bankruptcy swear under penalty of perjury that they have included all debt in their schedules. However, keep in mind that just because people list all debts in their filing does not mean that they will not be allowed to repay their debts after bankruptcy if they are able to and want to.
