Potential Problems with 341 Hearings

A 341 hearing is a meeting that a debtor must attend to answer any questions the court or creditors have for that debtor. This means collecting a substantial amount of information and preparing for questions that may be difficult to answer.
A debtor heading into these proceedings may have a more stressful time if he or she commits the following errors:

  • Failing to gather sufficient information for the meeting
  • Failing to gather the appropriate documents or receipts
  • Not providing satisfactory answers for creditor or court questions
  • Having a bankruptcy trustee request additional information at a later time

If a debtor wants to reduce the chance that he or she may encounter into these problems, the individual should work with a legal advisor through this process.
