What happens when I go to court?

In the § 341(a) Meeting of the Creditors, some creditors such as Sears or Best Buy may show up and ask about the property you bought from them. There is a trustee who reviews your bankruptcy petition and determines if you have any assets to give the unsecured creditors in Chapter 7′s. In most instances, your attorney may help you on your behalf with those creditors at these meetings.
