What happens at a bankruptcy meeting of creditors.

| Jan 22, 2018 | Bankruptcy Law |

 When you file a bankruptcy you are required to attend a meeting of creditors. If you file a bankruptcy in South Jersey that meeting will occur in either Cherry Hill New Jersey, Camden NJ or Northfield NJ. The meeting generally is held about 30 days after filing. Most of the time no creditors come and your meeting is with just you, your attorney and the trustee. The trustee’s job is basically to confirm that the information contained in your petition and schedules is accurate and to sell any nonexempt assets. Prior to the meeting your attorney will send numerous documents to the trustee which support the information contained in your bankruptcy. Your attorney will also review with you your petition and schedules prior to the meeting. As long as you have been straightforward with your attorney and your attorney has done what he is supposed to do the meeting of creditors should be relatively simple
