There is no statute of limitations or expiration date on a bankruptcy. You remain an undischarged bankrupt until you are discharged either automatically by your trustee (if you qualify) or by a Court Order.

Bankruptcy is a legal procedure that individuals apply for to find relief from their debts. If you don’t perform all of your duties properly then you will not be discharged – in other words the bankruptcy remains unfinished.

You have the right to apply to the Court to have your bankurptcy annulled. In order for a Court to do this you will need to prove that you have repaid the debt in full or you didn’t actually qualify to file bankruptcy in the first place.
