At the conclusion of an individual’s bankruptcy case, the Court enters an order closing the case, and a copy of this order is sent to the debtor.  Unless the trustee has assets to distribute to creditors, case closing takes place fairly quickly in Chapter 7 cases.  In Chapter 13, the case will not be closed until after the debtor finishes making payments under the plan.  The case will also be closed if the Court enters an order of dismissal.
