#1: Bankruptcy Discharges Totally Clear Debt

When a debtor files for bankruptcy, they may want to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in order to enjoy the benefits of debt discharge orders. These discharge orders do not fully clear all debt, however. Many forms of debt, including student loans and child support payments, are not included in debt discharges.

#2: Debt Discharges Cannot Be Challenged

When a person files to have their debt discharged by bankruptcy courts, this is no guarantee that they will be freed from their debt. When a debtor files for a discharge, the bankruptcy trustee or creditors may challenge that discharge. If their challenge is accepted by the court, the debtor may be held responsible for paying out a certain portion of a debt to the select creditor.

#3: A Discharge Closes a Case

When a debtor receives a discharge for their case, they may be on the first step towards financial freedom. However, the actual bankruptcy case is not closed yet. The bankruptcy trustee still needs to evaluate a debtor’s finances and make sure property is collected properly.
