If you have a credit card with a balance when you file bankruptcy, then you need to list it on your bankruptcy forms. This debt will automatically be discharged when your bankruptcy is approved unless you reaffirm it. If you decide to keep your credit card, you will need to contact your credit card provider and ask them their process for reaffirming this debt.
Before you decide to keep the card, remember that it is generally not a good idea to do so after you file bankruptcy. This is especially true if credit card debt was part of what caused you to file in the first place! Your fresh start is a great opportunity to start over, so think carefully before deciding to bring any old baggage into your new life. You can always get a new card after your current debt is forgiven!
