Will I Be Required to Go To Court?

Not usually. In the vast majority of bankruptcy cases, you only have to go to a proceeding called the “meeting of creditors” to meet with the bankruptcy trustee and any creditor who chooses to come. Most of the time, this meeting will be a short and simple procedure where you are asked a few questions about your bankruptcy forms and your financial situation. This meeting usually takes 5 minutes.

Trustee Meeting After Filing the Petition
Notice of Meeting of Creditors. When the petition is filed, a combined Order Scheduling a Meeting of Creditors and Fixing Filing Dates for Claims, Complaints Objecting to Discharge, and Complaints Seeking Exception to Discharge will be sent by the Court to all creditors, to you, and to your attorney’s office. This is commonly referred to as the “341 Notice” or the “Creditor Meeting Notice.” You should receive this Notice from the bankruptcy court approximately ten (10) days after your petition is filed.
