What do I need to provide the Portland Chapter 13 Trustee prior to my hearing?
No later than two weeks before your Portland Chapter 13 Creditors Meeting, the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee requires the following items:
1.) Any documents showing the last sixty days worth of income including pay stubs, 401k distributions, documentation of unemployment, pension payments and so on.
2.) Your most recent filed federal and state tax returns.
3.) Bank statements showing any account balances on the day before filing and on the actual filing date. These may be of the online variety. While you may have provided some of these items previously to your attorney(Most commonly items one and two), it is ultimately your responsibility to make sure that the Portland Trustee has all of the necessary documentation prior to your hearing. With that in mind, you will want to either scan and email the above items or fax them to your attorney as soon as possible so that they can be relayed to the Portland Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee.
