I know I got a discharge, and I tried to apply
for some financing, and they said I was good to go, but my bankruptcy is still open. How could that be? I got a discharge. My name is Ron Drescher. I’m an attorney practicing bankruptcy and
creditors’ rights in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, and, you may have gotten a discharge
in your bankruptcy case, but for some reason the court is going to keep that case open. Maybe a creditor has filed some sort of motion,
they want to do something. Maybe the trustee has found assets that the
trustee wants to administer and that could take weeks, months, or even years before your
case is closed after you got a discharge. So, sometimes if you want to try to get on
with your life after you get your discharge, but the case is still open, you should bring
your bankruptcy attorney into the picture, try to get their help, so that you can coordinate
with lenders or landlords or anybody else who needs to fully understand what’s going
on in your situation, so that you can move forward in your life after getting a discharge,
even though the bankruptcy case has not been closed. My name is Ron Drescher. I’m an attorney practicing bankruptcy and
creditors’ rights. If you have a question about the timing of
your bankruptcy discharge and your case being closed, please pick up the phone and call
me. I would love to hear from you
