After the 341(a) hearing the trustee will issue a No Asset Report stating that after the exemptions claimed, there are no assets to distribute in this matter. If there is real estate involved, the trustee will issue a notice of proposed abandonment with respect to the property, meaning that the trustee is not interested in selling the property to gamer any money for the creditors, and if there is no objection to the abandonment, it will be abandoned shortly, returning the property to the debtor. Each time the court issues a notice I will send a copy to my client with a letter of explanation so they can understand what is happening at each step of the process. Hopefully, I will receive the discharge order sixty days after the hearing. Provided that the code sheet has been returned and a certification of completion has been timely filed with the court, this is the end of the Chapter 7 process.
