The Bankruptcy Trustee (sometimes just called the “Trustee”) is a person designated by the United States Trustee’s Office (Part of the Department of Justice) to oversee your case. The Trustee will examine your bankruptcy petition, ask you questions, and determine if you own any property that cannot be protected. Property that cannot be protected will be seized and sold by the Trustee to be distributed to your creditors to help satisfy your debts.
