bankruptcy processWhen entering into any form of bankruptcy, whether filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, you are working towards the ultimate goal of having your debt discharged. While this is the ultimate goal for every bankruptcy filing, many people continue to have questions about it, the idea of discharge a murky, unclear concept that is hard to pin down exactly.

Within debt, discharge allows the person in debt to be relinquished from any legal hold that creditors may have on them. Creditors are not allowed to pursue any sort of action towards collecting this debt, and the debtor is released from having to pay them off. Discharge is part of the Bankruptcy Code and allows the debtor a clean slate to start on when they move forward with their life. There are cases, however, when it can be denied due to misconduct or fraudulent actions of any kind. There are also certain kinds of debts that simply cannot be discharged.
