In most cases, you don’t actually have to appear in court during the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process if you hired an attorney to prepare your case. You will, however, be required to attend a 341-meeting with the trustee known as the “Meeting of the Creditors”. This brief meeting will require you to answer a few questions that will help determine the legitimacy of your bankruptcy filing. In some rare instances, an individual may be required to attend court if something goes wrong with their bankruptcy filing.
