Will I Have to Appear in Court?
No. It is very unlikely you will ever appear before a judge. Most people make only one appearance before a Chapter 7 Trustee. This meeting is called the Meeting of Creditors, because creditors get a change to question you at the meeting. However, creditors rarely show up. What really happen at this meeting is the Chapter 7 Trustee will ask you questions about your property, debts, income, living expenses, etc. 4 meetings are scheduled every 1/2 hour so they are brief. We will be there with you.
