This question is very confusing. Why would a debtor be trying to collect from a creditor? Why would a creditor receive a discharge? Debtor receives a discharge. Perhaps you meant to ask whether it is legal for a creditor to attempt to collect from a debtor on a debt that was discharged in bankruptcy. If that is your question, then the answer is no, attempting to collect on a discharged debt is a violation of bankruptcy court's discharge order.
