Why do you fight bankruptcy cases? What happens if you don't?

What does a bankruptcy "discharge" do to a debt? Does the debt go away? May the debtor still voluntarily pay it? What risks are involved when that happens?

Are all debts discharged if you don't fight back? (Hint: They aren't.) What about loans secured by real property? When are they discharged and when aren't they discharged? Are you wrongfully reporting some debts as having been discharged in bankruptcy when they weren't? (That's the subject of a number of lawsuits!)

May a debtor borrow money from you and use part of the money to repay all or part of a discharged debt? May you rewrite a discharged loan? What about a real property loan with a balloon payment—may you rewrite that after the bankruptcy is over?

During this online training program, attorney Eric North provides answers to the questions above and will discuss:

Just because the bankruptcy is over doesn't mean the relationship between your financial institution and the debtor is over. Often you will continue to do business for years after the discharge, but with a relationship that may have been changed significantly by the bankruptcy case.
