What Is the Role of the Bankruptcy Trustee? Our Attorneys Can Help Explain.

The role of the trustee for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy is slightly different. However, in both situations your trustee will be assigned to your case toward the beginning of the process and have the responsibility of keeping your case moving forward.

In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the role of the trustee will be to sell off assets that are nonexempt and administer the bankruptcy estate. Not all Chapter 7 bankruptcies include selling off assets. In fact, most of them do not. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the trustee is responsible for collecting monthly payments and distributing them to creditors. This is the only person who can collect payments under the repayment plan.
