debt discharge


A release of liability for certain unsecured debt obligations resulting from a bankruptcy court order or a creditor by agreement with a debtor. Court ordered discharges renders the debt as unenforceable against the debtor. Debts secured by collateral such as mortgages and auto loans are rarely discharged and are enforceable through liens against the property.
