Do I Have to Go to Bankruptcy Court?
Orlando Bankruptcy Process
You may be wondering, do I have to go to Bankruptcy Court? Probably not. I mean, there is a mandatory meeting everyone who files bankruptcy must attend, about a month after filing, called theSection 341 Meeting of Creditors. That is a very misleading name, as rarely, if ever, do creditors appear at the meeting. And, the meeting is not held in a Courtroom. It’s a bout a 5 minute meeting with the Trustee appointed to your case, you, and me.
As an Orlando bankruptcy attorney, it is very rare for my clients to have to appear at any hearing other than the Meeting of Creditors. Because this meeting is not held in theBankruptcy Court, then you could say that No, you will probably not have to go to court when you file for bankruptcy.
