Will I Face My Bankruptcy Creditors?

 Will my creditors come to the court if I file bankruptcy ?

What many of my bankruptcy clients worry about is that their bankruptcy creditors  will be at the creditors meeting if they file bankruptcy in San Diego  and it will be embarrassing for them.The good news is, bankruptcy creditors rarely attend bankruptcy meetings of creditors (also called 341 hearings).  However, this does not mean that your creditors are giving up their right to object to your bankruptcy discharge.

Bankruptcy Creditors are not required to go to the  meeting of creditors

When you file for bankruptcy in San Diego, your creditors receive notice of the date and time of your meeting of creditors. But this does not mean that they will show up. Your creditors are invited, but not required, to attend your hearing. In 98 percent off all  bankruptcy cases, no creditors will appear at the meeting of creditors. If a creditor does show up , your attorney will usually know about it and so will you.

Most Bankruptcy Creditors will not appear at the meeting of creditors

Creditors are not allowed to conduct an extensive examination of you and your situation  at the meeting of creditors. Mostly creditor questions are limited to the nature and location of the debtor’s assets. In San Diego most creditor meetings are very short over in 5 to 10 minutes  so, the  bankruptcy trustee only has a few minutes to devote to each case.

As a result, unless a creditor believes that you are committing fraud or hiding assets, it will not benefit from taking the time to come to your hearing. However, even if a creditor does not attend your meeting of creditors, it can still object to your discharge
