what is the difference between a bankrupt`s discharge and the trustee`s discharge?
March 4th, 2010 by Questions
I filed for bankruptcy in January 2007 due to two years of unemployment and death in the family. I had no assets, I completed all requirements such as two counselling sessions and paid my trustee the required fee. I was not discharged after nine months as the trustee could not acquire full details from one of the banks regarding my bank account but told the judge that it is required by law that the banks gives her the information and it was a matter of time. I waited patiently for three years to hear from her. Surprisingly I recently received a form (form 15) which indicates that my trustee applied for discharge of trustee. What does it mean? Does it mean that I will be discharged, too? I can`t get an answer from my trustee, she did not communicate during the years and did not return my numerous calls. Is it possible a trustee can be discharged but I am not? If yes, what are the consequences and what can I do about this?
Thank you in advance. I truly appreciate any clarification. I have nowhere to turn.
