Chapter 7 Bankruptcy - Death and Its Consequences
Death, or incompetency, that occurs during the process of a chapter 7 bankruptcy action in Salt Lake and Sandy, Utah, does not stop or terminate the case. In fact, to the extent possible the court will treat the bankruptcy, and attempt to resolve the bankruptcy action, as though the death had never occurred.
How might this affect you? If somebody close to you has passed away during his/her bankruptcy, your rights to life insurance and assets may affected. If this person died before his or her §341 meeting, you may be asked to represent the debtor at the meeting.
