You are deciding whether to file bankruptcy and may have heard about working with a bankruptcy trustee in Minnesota. The primary role of the trustee is to be a “watchdog” for the bankruptcy process. In fact, the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy trustees helped manage all of the 5,761 bankruptcy filings in Minnesota for the year ending June 30, 2021.

The trustee’s responsibilities include:

  1. Appointing and supervising private trustees.
  2. Taking legal action to prevent fraud and abuse.
  3. Referring matters for criminal investigation when appropriate.
  4. Ensuring bankruptcy process is administered and that fees are appropriate.
  5. Reviewing disclosure statements.
  6. Advocating matters of bankruptcy code.

We will cover Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy trustees with contact information in Minnesota as those are the most common for personal bankruptcies.
