Typical Paperwork Required
A 341 hearing is a meeting the debtor is required to attend shortly after he files for bankruptcy. Creditors may also attend, but rarely do. During this meeting, the bankruptcy trustee interviews the debtor about his current financial status and reviews any documents she asked the debtor to bring. When the meeting is over, the debtor must provide a few additional documents to the trustee. This includes anything the trustee specifically requested, such as copies of current and previous year's filed tax returns, a certificate of completion for the required Personal Financial Management course and certification that all domestic support obligations are up to date or that no such obligations exist.
