My husband and I are seperating. Our bankruptcy (chapter 13)shold be discharged within 6 mos. Is there anyway the creditors can now accept that everything has been paid and the trustee discharge. I can not rent an apartment with an open bankruptcy and I can not live under the same roof with my husband anylonger.

That is something you need to discuss with the trustee and court. It depends on how close you are to completion. Do you have your own bankruptcy attorney?
If you don't, it may be time to consult with one to help you file any necessary motions you may need. Try www.attorneypages.com and then check his or her record at the Georgia State Bar.
