Meeting of Creditors, Who Needs to Attend?

Published 11/16/18 by Admin


Many people who file for bankruptcy wonder whether they will have to go to court. The bankruptcy laws require that you go to a meeting that is conducted by the bankruptcy trustee. This is known as the meeting of creditors.

Who has to Attend the Meeting?

You, your attorney and the bankruptcy trustee are the only people who have to attend the meeting. Creditors have the option of attending this meeting, but most of them will not show up for it. If they do come to the meeting, then you do not have to worry about them harassing you. Your Columbus Ohio bankruptcy attorney will be there to support and defend you.

What You Should Bring to the Hearing
