If you file a chapter 13 bankruptcy, and later convert that chapter 13
to a chapter 7, and you had new debts arise during the active chapter
13 but before the conversion, are those debts discharged or not?
They are discharged. A post filing debt when converting from chapter 13
to chapter 7 is required to be included in the amended schedules to discharge
the debt. Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 1019 allows you to schedule
post petition debts. The deadline to add the debt is at least 14 days
after conversion. The debt has to have arisen from after filing the first
case and before converting to the new case.
