Those who find themselves in financial trouble are often unaware that debts associated with gambling can be eliminated in a bankruptcy. While New Jerseyians have received certain benefits such as generating revenue for the Schools, from offering widespread gambling opportunities such as lotteries, racetracks, and casinos, it also has created some pitfalls. New Jerseyians often find themselves with unpaid gambling debts especially when they are provided with cash advances and extended unsecured lines of credit, which they cannot afford to pay back. The Bankruptcy Code does allow for the discharge of certain legal gambling debts. This is dependent on other factors in the debtors case, such as levels of income, monthly living expenses, other debts, and the bankruptcy chapter you qualify for.
