CAN THE COURT DENY A BANKRUPTCY DISCHARGE?
The court can deny a Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 discharge if the debtor fails to complete the financial management course required by the court.
In a Chapter 13 case, a discharge can also be denied if:
- The debtor fails to pay domestic support obligations that were due prior to the completion of the repayment plan
- The debtor received a discharge for a previous case within a certain period of time (two years for a previous Chapter 13 case and four years for a previous Chapter 7 case)
