What is a Creditor's meeting (§341 meeting)? What can I expect to happen there?
Debtors have a duty to appear and testify under oath and to be questioned by the trustee at the §341(a) meeting. This meeting is presided over by the trustee assigned to the case and is held approximately 40 days after the new petition is filed. Failure to appear may result in dismissal of the case. If a continuance of the meeting date is sought, contact the trustee assigned to the case.
