Preparing For Your 341(a) Meeting Of Creditors

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings require that you attend a 341(a) meeting of creditors. This is a meeting between you and the bankruptcy trustee. Your attorney will also attend to represent you. Creditors may attend this meeting, but they rarely do.

While this may sound intimidating, it is simply an opportunity for the bankruptcy trustee to meet with you, make sure everything is in order and ask you some questions.

What Do I Need To Bring To The Meeting?

Your lawyer will give the bankruptcy trustee all of your information and documentation prior to the meeting so he or she has a chance to review it. The only things you will need to bring with you to the meeting are your Social Security card and a photo ID. If you do not bring these two items to the meeting, the trustee might have to reschedule.

What Will Happen During The Meeting?

The trustee’s job is to represent the creditors’ interests. The trustee will ask about your property and debts. He or she may also ask how you determined the value of the property listed in your bankruptcy filing.

An attorney from Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., will be at the meeting with you, acting as your guide and representing your interests. We collect and prepare all of the necessary paperwork prior to the meeting, and we will talk with you about what to expect.
