The discharge available to a Chapter 13 debtor after completion of all payments under the plan is the broadest discharge under any chapter of the Code. This Part 8 discusses the “full-payment” discharge and the “hardship” discharge and the exceptions to each. Although rare, waiver and revocation of discharge are also covered. The effects of discharge on liens and on postpetition claims get special attention. Changes made to the Chapter 13 discharge by the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA)1 are referenced here but discussed in detail in Part 9.
