March 22nd, 2007 by Questions

I am a first time bankrupt who has not quite managed to comply with everything for the automatic discharge. What can I expect in court?

, A licensed trustee said:

That depends on what you mean by “not quite managed to comply” with your duties. In most cases, the Court will either adjourn your matter until such time as you have completed your duties or the Court will issue an Order compelling you to complete your duties.

A word of caution, regardless what the Court orders, the law only requires your trustee to keep your bankruptcy active up to your Court date. After that, if you fail to perform your duties your trustee has the right to seek their own discharge. If this happens your creditors rights to pursue you are re-instated (collection agents can call, wages may be garnisheed, etc). I strongly suggest you provide your trustee with a definite schedule of when your duties will be completed and then stick to the schedule.
