Q: how long does it take to get a Decree after ch.7 after the final report for applications for compensation.
the courts have accepted and approved the order the Ch.7 trustee did The final Report for compensation & applications & deadline to object. I just wanna know how long does it take to get the Decree showing closed? And my Bankruptcy attorney will not contact me nor will the trustee what can i do please help! We need to sell our home ASAP but we can not get anyone to contact us back or the closing attorney to get permission to sell. Any help is appreciated thank you.
A: The Clerk's offices are lightly staffed, with many staff working from home due to COVID. The same thing exists in the Bankruptcy Administrator's office. Things are taking a little longer than normal. I suggest you call the Clerk of Court and explain the situation. If the Clerk is waiting on the Bankruptcy Administrator to act, then contact the Bankruptcy Administrator's office.
