Will You Need to Go to Court?
Bankruptcy Court Appearance
If you file for bankruptcy, you will need to attend a 341 meeting in the bankruptcy court. Many petitioners worry about this meeting, fearing a judge will question all of their financial decisions in front of a full courtroom. On the contrary, there is no judge and the purpose is to efficiently move bankruptcy cases along. With guidance from an experienced bankruptcy lawyer, you can confidently face the court appearance.
At RHM LAW LLP , we walk clients through all steps of the bankruptcy process, including the 341 meeting required for a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Rest assured we will be right by you the entire time. Our California bankruptcy attorneys have helped thousands of clients find debt relief. We can help you.
Almost all of the bankruptcy work is done before we even get to the 341 meeting. Our attorneys will prepare your paperwork and explain the process to you in detail so you are prepared for the court appearance. When you arrive in court, you will know what to expect and why. Further, one of our experienced lawyers will be by your side, protecting your rights and interests.
What Happens at the 341 Meeting
At the 341 meeting, only three parties are generally present: you, your lawyer and the bankruptcy trustee. Your creditors and debt collection companies may attend the meeting, though they are not required to do so. In fact, most often they do not attend.
During the meeting, the bankruptcy trustee will ask you some routine questions about your finances in order to ensure accuracy of information provided on your bankruptcy petition. All you need to do is answer the questions honestly.
