The question is what is a discharge in bankruptcy? A discharge in bankruptcy is simply a fancy way of referring to the order that the court enters that wipes out the debt that a person owes at the time that they file bankruptcy. Now a discharge order is pretty powerful. A discharge order prevents creditors from taking any further action to collect against that particular debt. That includes phone calls, it includes legal action, it includes letters. Any of these harassing types of actions are prohibited once the discharge order is entered. The discharge order is entered at the end of a successful bankruptcy.
