Video: What is the trustee?

In every chapter 7 bankruptcy that gets filed, whether it's filed by a person or a business, a bankruptcy trustee is appointed. That trustee is armed with the responsibility of taking the assets of the debtor that are not otherwise protected under Florida law, liquidate them so that the trustee can pay general unsecured creditors whatever he can pay from the fund he's able to create.
