You cannot discharge government fines in chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, you may be able to discharge a portion of the debt if you file chapter 13. If your license is suspended for unpaid tickets, chapter 13 can help you get your license back. However, chapter 13 does require you to commit to a 3 to 5 year repayment plan of your debt. Your payment amount is determined from your income and living expenses.
