Discharge From Bankruptcy

This is the final outcome of the bankruptcy process. A Certificate of Discharge is issued after the bankrupt completes all required duties and the bankruptcy period has finished. A bankruptcy discharge is a legal release from the requirement to pay debts as of the date of filing bankruptcy, with some exceptions.

Bankruptcies can end in an automatic discharge (no court hearing required), an absolute discharge order, conditional discharge or suspended discharge (delay in your discharge date pending court requirements).
