  1. For a bankruptcy to no longer be active it must be discharged or dismissed. The latter is typically bad (however if you weren't really bankrupt it would not be bad--but in the event you were not found to be qualified for a discharge [either because you didn't cooperate at all or because you were found to have conducted yourself in an improper way] would it be bad).


  2. To correct slightly the previous answer, if your case has not been discharged (or dismissed) AND closed, it is still active.
