Do I have to appear in court for bankruptcy?
Yes. You have to appear in one court hearing with your bankruptcy attorney in Sacramento bankruptcy court or Modesto bankruptcy court called the 341 Meeting of Creditors to answer your Bankruptcy Trustee question. There will be other debtors waiting for their turn so the meeting at the Sacramento bankruptcy court or Modesto bankruptcy court will typically last for one hour but the actual questioning time last for 5 to 15 minutes. You must bring your driver’s license and social security card, or other form of acceptable identification, to the the 341 Meeting of Creditor. If you forgot to bring those items or if the Bankruptcy Trustee needs additional documents, the 341 Meeting of Creditors will be continued for a another day. Typically, the 341 Meeting of Creditors takes only one hearing to complete assuming that you bring both identifications and provided your Bankruptcy Trustee with the requested documents.
