What to Expect in Court

Looking to file for bankruptcy?

Approximately six weeks after your petition for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy has been filed a 341 hearing will be held in the bankruptcy court. This gives the Bankruptcy Trustee an opportunity to review the information in your petition with you. He or she will ask questions about your bank account, payments and assets. This hearing is usually quite brief and to the point. The Trustee will be responsible for accepting your assets and distributing the proceeds to your creditors. Because of the complexities in the bankruptcy process, it is very advisable that you work with an Oregon bankruptcy lawyer in preparing all of the documents which are to be filed with the court as part of your petition.

You should be prepared with picture identification, your social security card, your most recent tax return and proof of wages or income. Your bankruptcy attorney will ensure that any bankruptcy exemptions are properly documented before filing. Your creditors may attend this hearing but very often do not. In a Chapter 7 case, your debts will usually be discharged within two to four months after you have filed your case. In the Chapter 13 case, you must complete your payment plan ensuring every payment is received by the Trustee in a timely fashion before your debts are fully discharged. Failure to make payments on time or provide information requested by the Trustee could result in your petition being dismissed.
