You’ll sit down with the trustee that’s been assigned to your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case to make sure your bankruptcy case is in order. The primary purpose of the meeting is to ensure you’re not hiding any assets on your bankruptcy forms. If this sounds scary, don’t worry. Your part will probably only last ten minutes.

Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Spun out of Harvard Law School, our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can’t access their basic rights when they can’t afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.
