Does filing bankruptcy automatically terminate all your contractual obligations or just those related to debt? Can I use bankruptcy to get out of a service contract that doesn`t have a cash value?

It does not automatically terminate your contractual arrangements, but it can be used by either the bankrupt or the service provider to “break a contract”. Some common examples are cell phone contracts and gym memberships, but under current legislation, bankrutpcy may be used to break most contracts.
