Q.How do I find out who the trustee is?

A.In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the trustee is named on the Notice of the First Meeting of Creditors which is sent to every listed creditor. The information is also available from the bankruptcy court, and in some jurisdictions can be obtained over the telephone. In most Chapter 11 bankruptcies, there is no trustee because the debtor himself assumes the duties of a trustee. Please note that the United States Trustee (UST) is not the “case trustee”; the UST are employees of the Department of Justice that oversee the administration of a bankruptcy case.
