When individuals file for bankruptcy, they do not necessarily go to multiple court hearings. However, they are often required to attend one hearing, which is commonly known as a 341 meetings.
At this meeting, bankruptcy filers will meet with their bankruptcy trustees and any creditor that chooses to attend. If creditors choose to file a motion as result of this meeting, then filers may be forced to attend a bankruptcy hearing.
