If I filed Chapter 7 but one of my debts was not discharged, do I still have to pay the late fee’s that have accrued?

I filed Chapter 7 and had all of my debt discharged. One of my creditors fought me and I lost. The court said I got the load fraudulently and could not discharge it. So their debt was not discharged. While going through all of the bankruptcy, the late fee’s were adding up. Do I still have to pay the late fee’s and back interest?

If there was an adversary complaint filed against you with respect to your Chapter 7 filing and your debt for this particular creditor was not discharged, you are obligated for the unpaid principal, accrued interest, and potential late fees per any court order issued in state or federal court.
