How Do Gambling Debts and Losses Affect My Ability to File Bankruptcy?

Gambling is a form of entertainment for some, an addiction for others, and, for others still, a last resort when they are feeling financial pressure. The extent to which it affects lower-income people in larger proportion than higher-income people may be a root cause of an increased rate of bankruptcy filing, among many other causes, but the exact impact that gambling losses have upon the ability of a debtor who has decided to file bankruptcy to successfully have those losses discharged along with other debt is another matter entirely.
