What Can I Expect At My Chapter 7 Trustee Meeting?


Normally, the only meeting or hearing a Chapter 7 debtor must attend is the “341 meeting,” also called a creditor’s meeting or trustee meeting. Section 341 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code requires that the meeting be held “within a reasonable time” after the case is filed. In the Northern District of Texas, which covers the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the meetings normally take place about 30 to 45 days after the case filing. Debtors and their attorneys receive notice of the date and time of the meeting within hours of the case being filed.
