Most important

The most vital thing to learn about bankruptcy is: What are the rules? Be sure to get your trustee to explain the rules, even if they seem clear from your research.


Especially crucial is: What will I be required to do in my bankruptcy? Your trustee should clearly explain your duties.

Get all your questions answered

Be sure to write down your questions as you think of them. It’s hard to remember everything you want to ask while you are in your meeting.

At the end of the meeting, if you are not satisfied with the answers, it is your right to contact another trustee.
