Posted on August 8, 2013. Filed under: Chapter 13 Bankruptcy | Tags: , , |

All Chapter 13 cases have a Trustee. They are responsible for the overall administration of a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case. In all cases in the Western District of Kentucky, the Trustee is William W. Lawrence. He and his staff have many active case files.

The Trustee’s duties are found in the Bankruptcy Code. They include at a minimum, reviewing the bankruptcy petitions to ensure that they are complete and accurate; determining the ability of the debtor to make payments and whether all Chapter 13 plans will be successful as proposed; conducting the first meeting of creditors and appearing at other hearings in cases; monitoring the progress of the cases; collecting the payments and paying creditors
according to the plan; recovering improper payments made before the filing; providing information about the case to those who are authorized and have a need to know; and most importantly, assisting in the performance of the debtor’s plan.

The Trustee cannot give legal advice to the debtor. If the debtor needs legal advice they need to contact their attorney.
