The object of a bankruptcy, whether a Chapter 7, Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 is to rid the debtor of dischargeable debts. Debts (i.e. bills) can be either dischargeable or non dischargeable. Debts that are non dischargeable “survive” the bankruptcy and the debtor may be required to continue payment on those debts to avoid unwanted collection activity on the part of creditors.
We are often contacted by individuals seeking our advice when initially charged with or suspected of committing a crime. Most of our clients want to know what they should do when confronted by the police.
Under Oregon law, you may be arrested for the crime of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (sometimes referred to as DUI or more appropriately DUII), if a Police Officer believes that you were driving a motor vehicle, on a premise open to the public, while you were impaired to a noticeable or a perceptible degree by an intoxicant. Intoxicants include not only alcohol and illegal drugs, but may also include prescription medications and inhalants.
