Chapter 13 Discharge

Complex bankruptcy law concerning the scope of discharges has undergone major changes in recent years. As a result, debtors are suggested to seek advice from competent legal counsel to filing keeping in mind the scope of the chapter 13 discharge.

Chapter 13 debtors are permitted to a discharge once all payments under the chapter 13 arrangement are paid granted that the debtor: Confirm that every domestic support obligations that came due previous to creating documentation have been paid if relevant; has not received a discharge from a previous incident filed within a particular period of time; and has finished permitted lessons in financial management only if the bankruptcy administrator or US trustee for the district of the debtor has assessed that lessons are accessible to the debtor. The court is forbidden enter the discharge until it assesses, subsequent to a proper notice and hearing, that no grounds are present to consider there is any imminent proceeding that might allow for a restriction on the debtor's homestead exception.

The discharge liberates the debtor from arrangement provided liabilities or prohibited with limited exceptions. Creditors present for in entirety or in part under the chapter 13 arrangement will be restricted from starting or continuing any legal action or additional feat in opposition to the debtor to collect the discharged outstanding amounts.

As a generally accepted rule, the discharge liberates the debtor from all liabilities offered for by the accordance or prohibited, with the omission of particular liabilities suggested in section 1328. Liabilities that will not be discharged under chapter 13 include liabilities for child support or alimony, particular long term obligations such as a home mortgage, particular taxes, liabilities for most government funded or advantaged overpayments or definite educational loans, death-causing liabilities or personal injury due to drug influence or intoxicated driving, and fines included in a criminal sentence on the conviction of a restitution crime debt. In the case these liabilities are not paid in their entirety under the chapter 13 arrangement, the debtor will be held responsible after the bankruptcy case has finished for these liabilities. Liabilities for fraud while acting in a fiduciary situation, money or property liabilities accessed by false pretenses, and restitution or damage liabilities received in a civil case for the debtor's determined or malevolent actions that results in personal injury or death to another individual will be emancipated with the exception that a creditor files and triumphs in a method where the liabilities have been declared non-dischargeable in a timely manner.

Discharge in chapter 13 is considered broader than chapter 7 discharge. Liabilities dischargeable in a chapter 13 include determined or malevolent actions to asset liabilities, liabilities accumulated to pay non-dischargeable tax payments, and liabilities occurring from property in separation or divorce proceedings are not dischargeable in chapter 7.
