Everyone who files for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is required to attend what is known as the “341 Meeting”. The meeting is named after the section of the law that defines it, “Section 341 Creditors Meeting”. The purpose of the 341 Meeting is for you to meet with the trustee appointed by the bankruptcy court to oversee your case and discuss your petition for bankruptcy. Your creditors are advised of the meeting and may appear to ask questions, especially if they believe that you have assets you haven’t reported. At Tomes & Hanratty, P.C., we are meticulous in filing your petition to avoid any errors or omissions. After the meeting, if the trustee is satisfied with the information included in your petition, he or she will report the hearing result to the judge.
