Justipedia explains Reaffirmation

Despite being a legal document, a reaffirmation agreement is a voluntary one. Once filed in the court and approved, it can be enforced. A reaffirmation agreement can also be canceled in situations where it is discharged by the court or within 60 days from the date of its filing.
