Bankruptcy in Florida: Who is the United States Trustee?

14 Apr Bankruptcy in Florida: Who is the United States Trustee?

Congress established a permanent U.S. Trustee program in 1986 for every state except for North Carolina and Alabama. A trustee is appointed for each of the twenty two regions around the United States. The U.S. Trustee’s office must supervise the administration of cases and trustees in cases under Chapter 7, Chapter 13 and Chapter 11. The U.S. Trustee has many statutorily required functions, but in consumer cases, they really manage the cases, and they leave the micro-managing to the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Trustees.

If a problem or issue arises in your case, you can be sure that the U.S. Trustee’s office is aware of the issue and will monitor it closely. They may ask for documentation or an explanation to substantiate a debtor’s claim. Personally, I have found them to be an ally in my cases.
