What will the Trustee ask me at the Meeting of the Creditors

So, you ask: “what will the Trustee ask me at the Meeting of the Creditors?”  I decided to answer that question in a bit of a different way.

I love doing podcasts over at Gershburg Law, P.C. because my voice somehow sounds semi-sexy (very different in real life).  In any case, my most recent podcast surrounds the Meeting of the Creditors in New York City, also known as the “341 Meeting.”  This is where the Chapter 7 Trustee will ask a number of questions surrounding your Bankruptcy petition.  “Do you own a car?”  ” Do you own a home?”  The problem is many people that have filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in New York City don’t know the questions that are coming their way.  Their attorney doesn’t prepare them or maybe they’re nervous, but it turns into a mess when it really shouldn’t.

So, what will the Trustee ask at the Meeting of the Creditors?

Below is a link to a podcast I recorded discussing the most common questions you’ll be asked during the Meeting of the Creditors. Specifics are important.  Know exactly when you bought your home.  Know exactly where you received money for the downpayment.  Know exactly why you have $32,000 in credit card debt.  Without this, you’re going to have a really, really long day.
