What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?IL

I am not certain anyone will know what I am talking about, but------

I read either here on the board or in the Nolo Book something about making sure that the Trustee "closed" the meeting when it was finished. (I THINK that was the term.) It said that otherwise the creditors would have more than just the 60 days in which to oppose, or whatever.

Anyone know what I am trying to say???

You've got something confused. The petitioner has no say in when a trustee will close the bk. Creditors have 60 days from the 341 to file written objections. If there are none, the trustee will send a discharge letter a few days or weeks later. They'll then close it at their leisure. It all depends on the workload of the trustee. Do not tell them how to do their job!
