The order means that the Court is delaying your discharge. You have probably been sent notices about the issue underlying this Order before. Have you completed the second credit briefing, on Financial Management? Or has your case Trustee or the US Trustee requested additional information or documents which you have not yet supplied? A skilled lawyer is almost always worth the investment. Meantime, why not call whoever signed the Order, likely the Clerk of Court, and ask?

It could mean a lot of things, but probably that something is missing or wrong or undetermined in your case. Better to call your lawyer.

Somebody's been a bad girl (or boy). You didn't comply with the rules of the court and you're getting kicked out. Either you didn't file your second course certificate, your didn't make your fee installment payment or you didn't follow a court order. This is probably nothing that doing whatever you missed PLUS an absurdly expensive re-opening fee won't cure.

Well for some reason there is a delay in your discharge or a denial of discharge. Without seeing all the paperwork I can't answer this. You need to have local counsel look into this ASAP.

Your bankruptcy did not eliminate your debts and was not successful. The most common reason that an order like this happens is because you did not complete all of the legal requirements of a bankruptcy, such as taking the second financial management class or filing the certificate showing that you completed this crucial class.
