Business, Legal & Accounting Glossary
n. an order given by the bankruptcy judge, at the conclusion of all legal steps in processing a bankrupt person’s assets and debts, which forgives those remaining debts which cannot be paid, with certain exceptions. Debts for fraudulent or illegal actions, alimony and child support and taxes are not dischargeable and remain owed (but often not collectable if the bankrupt person has nothing). A discharge in bankruptcy is bad news for unsecured creditors.
