Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Assuming the underlying obligation is dischargeable in bankruptcy, the existence of a confession of judgment would not preclude the scheduling and discharge of that debt.
Yes, legal fees can be discharged in bankruptcy.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
No, a confession of judgement does not, in and of itself, ratify or otherwise render the obligation non dischargeable in bankruptcy. Certain obligations are affected, such as goods or services obtained by fraud, are non-dischargeable where there is a confession of judgment, but not legal fees.
