What is a Chapter 7 trustee?

The Chapter 7 trustee is an officer of the court appointed to administer your Chapter 7 case.  The Chapter 7 trustee’s duties include conducting the meeting of creditors, gathering any of your nonexempt property of significant value, turning it into cash, using the cash to pay your creditors and ensuring that you perform all of your duties as a Chapter 7 debtor.  A trustee is appointed in a Chapter 7 case even if the debtor has no nonexempt property for the trustee to collect.
