I just got my Bankruptcy Discharge!
Congratulations, you made it through your bankruptcy and received the discharge. That was one of the goals of filing for bankruptcy in the first place. The discharge of the debt means that you no longer have personal liability on the debts that were dischargeable.
Some debts (e.g., child support. Alimony, student loans, priority taxes) do not get discharged and you therefore still have personal liability and must pay those debts otherwise those creditors will probably begin collection activities against you.
Some creditors have security interests or liens on assets (e.g., vehicle loans, house loans, furniture purchased at Nebraska Furniture Mart) and if you want to keep those assets you must continue making the payments otherwise the creditor can seek to repossess or foreclose on the assets … this is true despite the fact that your personal liability on the debt was discharged such that the creditor cannot sue you personally anymore on the debt.
When you receive your notice in the mail from the court indicating that your discharge has been ordered by the judge it would be wise to keep a copy of that document in your records. You might even want to scan the discharge order and email it to yourself in addition to keeping the paper copy.
