A bankruptcy discharge copy is a document issued by a state or federal court that completely clears an individual of all his or her debts. A bankruptcy discharge copy is granted to individuals whose financial circumstances are so dire that they are unable to pay off their creditors despite every effort they make. A bankruptcy discharge copy can be obtained in two ways: through the filing of a bankruptcy petition or through the purchase of one online. The first way to obtain a bankruptcy discharge copy is by filing a bankruptcy petition with the state or federal court in charge of handling such matters. The client will then have to go before the court and explain why he cannot pay off his creditors, and how he has tried to do so but it was impossible for him to do so because his income was too low, or because he suffered from one or more ailments that would not allow him to work.
