2 Questions Answered

Q. How much can a trustee take?
A: I would recommend discussing any questions you have with your attorney. If you are a 100% Chapter 13 plan then you won't be obligated to pay more than all the creditors that file claims, the trustee commission, and your attorney's fees. There may be a small interest component paid to your creditors as well. Your attorney will be able to provide additional details pertinent to your situation.
Q. How long should I wait before filing chapter 7 after having removed my name from my elderly mothers savings account?
A: A portion of the petition you'll complete to file for bankruptcy protection called the Statement of Financial Affairs will require that you disclose any financial accounts you were on within the last year. I agree with Attorney Keyes that you may not have to delay in filing your case at all if you can show the money was your mothers. A Chapter 7 trustee will have questions regarding the matter but proper documentation should help resolve it.
