Bankruptcy Discharge in Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Elyria, & Garfield Heights
What Is a Bankruptcy Discharge?
If you obtain a bankruptcy discharge as a result of filing bankruptcy,
you are legally released from personal liability for certain debts. In
addition to the debt forgiveness, creditors are no longer able to communicate
with you by phone, mail, or in person, or take legal action against you
for those debts.
In a chapter 7 bankruptcy, the discharge is typically granted about four
months after the petition is filed. A chapter 13 bankruptcy discharge
is granted after completion of your plan payments.
Whether it is a chapter 7 or a chapter 13 bankruptcy, a discharge does not:
- Cancel or extinguish certain debts like alimony or child support
- Discharge co-debtors liability
- Eliminate the creditor's security interest
