Hi JACustomer,

The right to file a Bankruptcy is protected by the US Constitution. This means it is a right that cannot be waived.

In other words, the debt in question can be discharged in a Bankruptcy even though you signed an agreement that said you have to pay even if you file a Bankruptcy.


I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.

Thank you.
