The Michael H. Meyer Chapter 13 Trusteeship is closed to the public until further notice. We will answer or return phone calls as time is available. We are processing cases and receipts and will disburse to creditors at the end of the month. Important notes below.
Our office has received many phone calls from debtors asking what to do about making the monthly payments. Debtors should talk to their attorneys about their options and the best course of action based on their situation. The trustee does not have the authority to waive payments required by the bankruptcy court's orders.
The U.S. Trustee Program has extended the requirement that section 341 meetings be conducted through alternative means not requiring in-person appearance to all cases filed during the period of the President's "Proclamation on Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak" issued March 13, 2020, and ending on the date that is 60 days after such declaration terminates. The Proclamation was issued on March 13th and continues until the President declares we are beyond the national health emergency. Appropriate notice will be provided to parties in accordance with bankruptcy law and rules.
If you are a renter having trouble paying your rent or a landlord who has lost rental income due to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, help may be available. Through funding from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program, there are a wide variety of state and local programs that offer assistance—including financial assistance—to those who are struggling to make ends meet.
