What is a Bankruptcy Trustee?
Bankruptcy Trustee: The United States Trustee program is a division of the Department of Justice. Each bankruptcy case is administered by an individual “trustee.” When you file for bankruptcy in Aurora, Littleton or Centennial, an impartial bankruptcy trustee is assigned to your case. They oversee many aspects. For example, in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, they are in charge of reviewing your bankruptcy petition and documents, conducting your bankruptcy hearing, and liquidating your non-exempt assets.
