1. The court will hold the Meeting of Your Creditors about three to six weeks after your bankruptcy case is filed.
2. Within 60 days after the meeting, the creditors or the trustee may take issue with one or more of your debts and thus may object to them. If that happens, then a hearing could be set before the court and you may need to come testify. If there are no such problems, then you will receive your discharge as soon as the 60-day time period for objecting to discharge or moving to dismiss your case expires.
3. If you do not attend the 341 meeting, your case will be dismissed. There are no exceptions. It has to be done by you in a face to face setting.
