In a chapter 7 it is a total liquidation BK, that has been found valid and has been approved. Therefore the debtor(s) are discharged from the debt(s) that were included in the BK. A discharged BK is not the same as a closed BK. If it is a chapter 13, it indicates that the debtor(s) have fulfilled their obligation of repaying the amount to creditors that was ordered in the BK. After the trustee's audit a chapter 13 is considered closed
