When you file a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case, the court’s Electronic Filing System assigns a court location, a Judge, and a Trustee to your case. Regardless of which type of case you file, the US Trustee remains the same. Then a date for your Meeting of Creditors is scheduled by the same system and it is set for approximately 30 days after the day your case is filed.
