Most chapter 7 bankruptcy cases last three to four months from the date your petition is filed with the bankruptcy court. Most of the work that must be completed is completed during the first forty-five days after the case is filed. The 341 meeting of the creditors is scheduled by the court and will be approximately 30 – 45 days after the case is filed. We will provide the trustee assigned to your case any documents necessary and we will of course appear with you at the meeting of the creditors. It is rare that any creditors actually show up to ask questions at the meeting of the creditors. Creditors must have grounds to object to the discharge of the debts eligible to be discharged. If no grounds exist, then it is pointless to pay someone to attend the meeting of the creditors to ask questions.
