judgements in BK

I was asked this question today, and I do  not know the answer.  I am hoping someone here can help. 
 
What happens to Civil Judgements (debt) when included in CH 7 BK.  I am particularly looking for info for Virginia. 
Thanks

Re: judgements in BK

Try going to the Bankruptcy Talks Thread in Yahoo Groups. There is a BK attorney that answers alot of questions for people. You will learn alot like you do here on this thread.

Re: judgements in BK

bills, do you have a link for yahoo.  not familiar with the site, don't know how to get there.
 
Also, if anyone has any other good message boards or areas they'd like to share, it would be greatly appreciated.  I'm going to be filing ( as soon as i figure out all the paperwork the attorney gave me, and come up with the $$)  i'm anxious to read anything I can find.
 
thanks!

Fellow virginian here...
however it doesnt matter how it reports regardless of the state you are in.
If a judgement is included in your bk it will show up as a public record and stays on your report for 7 years I believe. The debt from the judgement will read Chp/7 included in BK.
