Eliminate debt with an attorney who's worked as a trustee.
Discover how the experience of a chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee can guide you during your debt relief journey.
What is a bankruptcy trustee?
When you’re preparing for your case, it’s important to know who will be examining your case. In most, if not all cases, it’s a bankruptcy trustee, not a judge.
A bankruptcy trustee is the primary authority on a bankruptcy case. He or she:
- Reviews bankruptcy cases and documentation
- Holds a hearing where the debtor is questioned
- Determines if assets can be administered to creditors
- Recommends if a case proceeds to discharge
An attorney can assist you in gathering the right documents and establishing your case. This can minimize your time spent in court and help you achieve debt relief.
