Court Date for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy - Who, What, When, and Where
"Upon first arriving at their 341 meetings with creditors, debtors typically seek direction. Depending on the location, a debtor must either check in (as is the case in Lake County) or take a seat in the specified waiting area. In both instances, the debtor must examine at least one piece of paper before entering the meeting with the respective Trustee. In addition, a debtor is not permitted to enter the Trustee's chamber until their name is called.The majority of debtors are hesitant to ask pertinent case-related inquiries. Anxious-appearing debtors appear to believe that a Trustee can discipline them on that date, but they should be far more concerned about failing to inform their attorneys of any significant changes to their place of residence, prospective assets, or income and expenses. When meeting with one of our attorneys, a copy of the petition upon which the trustee is basing his inquiries is included in the folder that is given to the debtor. This is significant because the petition is frequently used as a reference and can help a debtor overcome any anxiety he or she may experience when answering the trustee's inquiries. Our attorneys should be aware that debtors are intimidated and apprehensive before entering the 341 meeting and act accordingly. It is essential to put the client at ease and to explain the types of inquiries the trustee will likely ask. Once they realize the queries will be similar to our initial consultation, debtors appear to be at ease with the process. However, when a debtor is facing the loss of a home or vehicle, the situation can be extremely trying and emotional, so our attorneys should offer whatever support they can.In the majority of cases, the meeting lasts approximately 10 minutes, and the Trustee simply verifies that all information in the petition is accurate and that the debtor has brought appropriate identification and social security number documentation. Additionally, the trustee may inquire whether any modifications have occurred since the petition was filed. If there are assets to administer, the trustee will handle them, but this is uncommon for our clients' purposes. At the conclusion of the meeting, the debtor will await their discharge if there are no outstanding requirements. Among the remaining obligations of a debtor are completing the Personal Financial Management Course and executing a Reaffirmation agreement.
