Questions Your Trustee May Ask You

When going through bankruptcy, you will have a trustee, who is the person that reviews your application for bankruptcy, evaluates your case, and ensures that your debts to creditors are paid off or discharged appropriately. Because of the important role that a bankruptcy trustee plays in the process of filing for bankruptcy, he or she will likely have a lot of questions for the person filing. At the Russell Van Beustring P.C., we believe it is important for people in Houston to be prepared for these questions so they can more efficiently handle their bankruptcy filing.

Common Trustee Questions

When you are preparing to meet with your bankruptcy trustee, you should also be prepared to hear and answer a variety of questions. For instance, some of the more common questions a bankruptcy trustee may ask you include:

  • Have you ever filed for bankruptcy? If so, explain.
  • Are all of your debts and assets accurately represented?
  • Did you read all of the documents of bankruptcy, including the petition, statements, and schedules?
  • Once you read them, have you signed them?
  • Can you explain previous and future tax refunds you have received / think you will receive?

Staying in touch and communicating with your bankruptcy trustee is important, so being prepared to answer these and other questions regarding your bankruptcy claim is important.
