Most judgments issued by the civil court are simply unsecured debts that are released by the filing of a bankruptcy.

However, there is one exception to this rule. If this judgment relates to intentional bodily harm, sexual assault, or wrongful debt, it cannot be cleared by the filing of a bankruptcy.

While there are a few other categories of debts that are not released by bankruptcy, these items are not collected through the civil courts so you likely won’t have any issues. But it is always important to bring a copy of the related court documents to a local trustee to have this verified.
