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.

Video Conferencing for all Meetings of Creditors
Beginning October 1, 2021, § 341 Meeting of Creditors will be conducted via video conference using the Zoom for Government platform. More info on attending a § 341 meeting of creditors using Zoom is available here. At the discretion of the trustee or Bankruptcy Administrator, any § 341 meeting may be continued to an in-person meeting in the division in which the case is filed. If an in-person § 341 meeting is set, it will be held at the applicable divisional location.

Certified Interpreter Requirement
The Bankruptcy Administrator's office will provide certified interpreters (foreign or sign language) for 341 meetings. It is not appropriate for the debtor or the debtor's attorney to bring an individual to the meetings to serve as an interpreter. The certified interpreter will be provided at the expense of the Bankruptcy Administrator's Office.
A request for a certified interpreter must be made at a minimum of ten (10) days in advance of the 341 meeting of creditors.
