what kind of mail would i receive during the bankruptcy process ?

December 10th, 2009 by Questions

hi im just wondering if during lets say the 9 month discharge period, would a bankrupt receive any mail from a lawyer or trustee`s office ? or if the creditors mail out anything unusual ? is it possible to set it up so no mail is sent ? just want to have my whole family get worried if i keep getting mail from a lawyer..thanks great site by the way… unbelievably helpful and informative. thanks

, A licensed trustee said:

Depenidng on your situation, there may be regular correspondence between your trustee’s office and yourself. Whether or not these items are sent to your home or some other address (or maybe you want to come and pick them up in person) – this sort of detail is something to discuss with the aprticular trustee you decide to deal with.

I have to warn you – it is very difficult to hide the fact that you’ve filed bankruptcy from the people you live with. If your trustee agrees not to send any mail to your home, or even not to call your home, it is still possible (likely) that at some point in the process something will be sent to the wrong place and then your secret will be revealed. We receive the kind of request you are contemplating a couple of times a year and invariably, word gets out. Sorry, but you may as well be prepared for it.
