A 341 hearing references the section of the bankruptcy code that requires you to meet with a trustee and your creditors. Now that’s a little misleading because in almost every bankruptcy case, your creditors will not appear at the 341 meeting. What happens is you sit at a table next to your attorney and across from the trustee. The trustee places you under oath and asks you general questions about the information you laid out in your bankruptcy papers. It’s a very brief meeting in most cases, usually five minutes or so. It’s usually the only hearing that you have to attend throughout the entire bankruptcy process.
