341 Meeting of Creditors

What to Expect During a Massachusetts 341 Meeting of Creditors
The meeting his held approximately 40 days after a person files for bankruptcy. While all creditors a person has debts with are notified of the 341 meeting, they’re not required to attend it. However, a debtor must appear at their hearing to answer questions from the trustee assigned to their case and any creditors who decided to attend the meeting.
Questions asked during the 341 meeting involve a person’s income, property, assets, expenses, and debts. They’re meant to help the trustee understand a person’s situation and whether their bankruptcy plan will work for them.
A 341 meeting will include questions involving:
- A person’s real estate or rent costs
- Personal property
- Tax returns
- Bank and investment accounts
- And more
These questions will help the court understand why a person is filing for bankruptcy and if they’re filing for the right type of it. Additionally, the trustee might ask about the debts that a person can’t discharge from bankruptcy (secured debts) and how they intend to pay them off.
Why Working with a Lawyer Is Smart During Bankruptcy
The 341 meeting is one of the most obvious ways to see the benefits of working with a bankruptcy lawyer. While nothing guarantees the outcome of your bankruptcy hearing, working with a lawyer provides you with help from a person who is familiar with how the process works. A lawyer will prepare you for your 341 hearing by helping you gather all information needed for it, prepping you for the questions you’ll be answered, and addressing any other issues that might be unique for your situation. Additionally, since the meeting requires an oath, having a lawyer will help ensure that you’re accurately presenting all information.
