Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.
Discharge means that your debts will be discharged for you, and that the debts that are dischargeable are gone, and they can never collect from you again.
The Case can stay open while the trustee liquidates assets.
This can include taxes, insurance that is not exempt etc.
The trustee can request the debtor provide information relevant to the case.
As to why the trustee is asking for the stubs? That would only be a guess. Perhaps they want to make sure you have the right budget in the case, and they have the right to request this informaiton
You can have your attorney ask why the trustee is asking for them. I am only speculating.
The trustee reviews pay stubs, taxes, bank statements, insurance etc.to make sure everything is consistent and disclosed in the bankruptcy case.
Did you have any followup questions?
We turned in 6 months of check stubs when we filed in September 2012. I don't understand why he needs 4 of our current stubs for June and May of 2013? Thanks for your help!
Maybe to make sure you have the right taxes coming out, and that you don't have disposable income? Best to just provide the stubs,and don't rock the boat. Trustee can request anything reasonable, and stubs are a reasonable request in most instances
Maybe have your attorney call or email the trustee to make sure everything is all set, they probably have a working relationship and can get some insight for you.
BEst of luck to you, feel free to request if there are any other questions
