A: I'm not sure I see how this relates to Bankruptcy... If you're seeking to determine whether this can be discharged in a bankruptcy case, the answer is likely "yes".

Otherwise, it seems to me that you signed a contract and that you're liable for whatever obligations you voluntarily signed up for.

Good luck with your case!
