341 Meetings

Each debtor must appear at a meeting of creditors.  This meeting is informally called a "341 meeting" because 11 U.S.C. § 341 requires that the debtor attend a meeting so that trustees and creditors can question the debtor about debts and property. Creditors who are listed on the debtor's petition will receive notice of the time and location of the meeting.
