You’re required to go to court one time when you file for bankruptcy.

You’ll need to show up to your 341 meeting, most commonly referred to as your “meeting of creditors.”


The meeting of creditors is a chance for your creditors to ask you any questions they may have. This is NOT an opportunity for your creditors to harass you, but to fill in any missing information they may need. And, your attorney will be right there beside you.

Your meeting of creditors isn’t court as you may know it. It’s not like the movies portray it. This is a very simple matter that will take you 5-10 minutes, but it’s something you MUST show up to. If you miss your meeting or creditors, then your case will be dismissed.

A good bankruptcy attorney will have most of this stuff handled before the meeting of creditors. The attorney will have talked to the creditors and answered most of their questions and given them the sufficient information they need regarding your bankruptcy. At Darrell Castle & Associates, we make sure this happens so that the meeting of creditors is smooth and efficient.

That’s why, if you’re considering filing for bankruptcy, it’s important to speak to an experienced attorney you can trust – one who’s going to put the proper amount of work in to make this process easy on you while walking and talking you through each step.
