Discharge And Closing--What Is Difference?
Hi, in my previous post, I mentioned we received our Chapter 7 discharge on 4/29. In checking PACER, the latest entry dated 5/8 has documentation that our case is "Closed". I was only aware of a what a discharge is, and don't know what exactly the closure status indicated. Mr. Weiss (super answer man!) or anyone, please post and let me know. Thanks and I will again re-iterate how helpful this board has been to us through the years. Without it, we would be totally unaware of what was really happening with the process, have maybe taken some wrong steps, and most of all we have received reassurance and support from people whom I cannot call strangers. This board is like having a favorite gathering place where people in the same boat can help each other out.
Discharge is when your personal obligation for your debts is wiped out. The case is closed when all outstanding matters in the case are ended. In no-asset cases, this is usually at the same time as the discharge.
