If you’re filing for bankruptcy, you’ll be dealing primarily with the bankruptcy trustee. This is the person appointed by the court to administer your case.
There are a bazillion (I’m pretty sure that’s a word because spell check didn’t catch it) pages on the web offering up information on the bankruptcy trustee. Looking around though, few of them offer any insightful information. Who is he/she? What do they do? Are they on your side? Are they out to get you? Will they sell all your stuff?
We felt it would be beneficial to give our readers some insight into this person, his/her role in your case, and how bankruptcy trustees really operate.
In typical Nolo fashion, we went straight to the source, and hired a bankruptcy trustee to give us the nitty gritty to help us build best place to go to get informed on the subject.
Patricia Dzikowski worked as a bankruptcy trustee for fifteen years in Florida, and is the author behind Nolo’s new section on The Bankruptcy Trustee. She’s worked to answer some of the most common questions, like whether the bankruptcy trustee is on your side, can the bankruptcy trustee deny your discharge of debts, will the bankruptcy trustee take your tax refund, and much more.
We’re just getting started, too. We’ve got a lot more work in the pipeline, so you can expect even more coming soon.
Just another example of how Nolo differs from pretty much every other source of legal information. We don’t just regurgitate what’s already out there, we go to the experts to bring you the best legal information you can find.
