  • What is the function of the U.S. Trustee? Indiana

    The Office of the U.S. Trustee is an Executive Branch Agency that is a part of the Department of Justice. Its responsibilities include monitoring the administration of bankruptcy cases and detecting bankruptcy fraud. It is also responsible for appointing “Panel” Trustees on Chapter 7 cases, “Standing” Trustees on Chapter 13 cases and overseeing the Debtor- in- Possession in Chapter 11 cases. The U.S. Trustee cannot give legal advice but they can give you information regarding the status of a case. You may also contact the U.S. Trustee if you are having a problem with a “Panel” or “Standing” Trustee or if you have evidence of fraudulent activity.



    The “Panel” Trustee’s job is to administer the bankruptcy estate, to make sure creditors get as much money as possible and to conduct the meeting of creditors. Failure to cooperate with the trustee could be grounds for a denial of discharge.


    The “Standing” Trustee’s job is to collect and pay creditors according to a repayment plan and to conduct the meeting of creditors. The trustee may also file motions to dismiss for failure to timely file a confirmable plan.
