Getting a Bankruptcy Trustee

Have you recently decided to file for bankruptcy? If so, you will soon be appointed a bankruptcy trustee.

If you filed under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a judge will appoint you a trustee to oversee your case. This person works for the Department of Justice and is in charge of reviewing your bankruptcy case, ensuring that everything is in order, and collecting assets. While this person is familiar with bankruptcy law, the individual may or may not be an attorney. Therefore, it is important to hire your own Chicago bankruptcy attorney before going to the first meeting with your trustee.

The Meeting of Creditors is one of the only times that you will be asked to meet with your trustee. While it may sound intimidating at first, a meeting of creditors usually only lasts for a few minutes. In addition to you and the trustee, your creditors will be alerted of and invited to the meeting. In most cases, your creditors will not appear. If they do, however, they will be given the chance to review you bankruptcy documents and ask questions about your statements.

Should you have questions related to the Illinois bankruptcy process, contact Bizar & Doyle, LLC now to get answers from our legal team as soon as possible.
