Bankruptcy Q&A - difference of denied entirely & partial discharge

What is the difference between a person being denied an entire discharge and being denied a discharge only on a particular debt that is nondischargeable?

May 1, 2012

An entire denial of a discharge completely blocks the debtor from being released from all debts. In other words, despite having filed bankruptcy the debtor still owes all his or her debts. On the other hand, if a particular debt is not dischargeable, the debtor is obligated to pay that particular debt, but is released from the remaining dischargeable debts.
