Bankruptcy Case Number & Notices

Within few days from the filing of your bankruptcy petition, you will receive a notice in the mail from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. This notice will include your name, address, and case number along with information regarding your upcoming meeting of creditors. The meeting of creditors will be conducted by a bankruptcy trustee whose name will appear on the notice as well. Please, note that the trustee is not a judge but an attorney appointed by the Bankruptcy Court and the U.S. Department of Justice to conduct the meeting of creditors and administer any funds or property that is considered part of your bankruptcy estate. Please, refer to our section on asset protection for information on the types of property that could be seized and auctioned off in bankruptcy.

Meeting of Creditors
The meeting of creditors will take place at the office of the U.S. Trustee or in the federal building that is closest to your residence as listed on your bankruptcy petition. Attending the meeting of creditors is mandatory and failing to appear may lead to dismissal of your case. However, your attorney may be able to reschedule your meeting of creditors if you have legitimate reasons to make such a request and do so at least two weeks prior to the meeting. In turn, your attorney will obtain a new date and notify all creditors listed in your bankruptcy petition.
