Credit bureau notification

January 23rd, 2006 by Questions

I am not yet in default on my debts but I’m concerned that I might be soon. If I seek guidance from an accredited Trustee, would they pass on information about my current financial circumstances to one the credit bureaus, or would they be legally bound to keep the information to themselves until I either filed a proposal to my creditor or for filed for bankruptcy. I’m concerned that seeking advice with put my creditors on alert and have them start harassing me.

, Barton Goth, GCO Inc. Bankruptcy Trustees said:

No, a Trustee doesn’t communicate with the credit bureau. Meeting with a Trustee is confidential and no one is informed until you choose to file a bankruptcy or a proposal, this includes the creditors, the courts and the Superintendent of Bankruptcy. The only parties that will be aware of this meeting are yourself and the Trustee’s office. It is the act of filing that results in notification, not simply seeking advice.
