A: It means that the bankruptcy plan for the Chapter 13 has been confirmed. There are several effects of having your plan confirmed. This means that the debtor (in this case you) and all of your creditors are now bound to your bankruptcy plan. In order to receive a discharge the debtor must perform (make the payments set forth in your plan). In a nutshell this means that the bankruptcy plan for the chapter 13 has now formally taken effect. If you would like to know any of the added details of confirmation I suggest contacting a local bankruptcy attorney to see how confirmation directly applies to your case.
