Q: I received a “Summary of Trustee’s Final Report and Applications for Compensation” in my bankruptcy case.
I do not understand most of it and contacted my attorney. But they are dragging their feet as they have with most everything else since the hearing. I would ask questions and would only be told to ignore it and don’t worry about it. There is a statement that says any objections need to be filed within 21 days of the mailing of the notice. My question is can I file an objection and how do I proceed. I only have a few more days since the attorney has yet to respond to my questions. Thank you
A: Your case is days away from being final and the discharge entered. One the trustee files that report, it’s all but over. I would seriously consider not objecting unless there is a glaring error or omission as it will hold up the entry of your discharge and closing of the case.
