Step 5: Meeting of Creditors
This meeting is held about 4-6 weeks after your case is filed. Your attorney will accompany you. Normally, none of your creditors will be in attendance. Before that hearing we will send you a letter that explains that hearing and the basic questions asked that looks like this. Your hearing will last about 5-10 minutes -- at the most. There is nothing to worry about. We will have you prepared for the hearing. If you would like to listen to an example of this hearing click here.
Following the filing of the bankruptcy you will need to complete the second debtor education class. It can be done over the phone or Internet. Olsen Olsen and Daines wholeheartedly endorses and recommends Evergreen Debt Counseling. They offer a five dollar discount to our clients. They are much easier to use than the competition and treat our clients very well. You will receive a discharge notice stating that your case is over around 60 days after the Meeting of Creditors if you filed a Chapter 7. If you are in a Chapter 13 you will continue making monthly payments until your plan is completed. We are and will always be available to talk with you about questions regarding your case.
