341 meetings are now being held by Zoom. The attorney and debtor must sign in for video and audio (not phone) except in extremely exceptional circumstances. The link is sent with the 341 Notice from the Court. I need you to identify yourself when you sign in so your name will appear below your picture. Please stay on mute until your case is called. Creditors need to place the word creditor with their name.
The Bankruptcy Code requires me to question the Debtor, not the Attorney for the Debtor. Coaching is not appropriate or ethical.
Please notify me one week prior to the 341 meeting if your client requires a language interpreter. If you need a deaf interpreter you will need to call the Office of the United States Trustee immediately after filing the case to make arrangements..
I will attempt to email all Attorneys if I learn the Federal Courthouse is closed. I will also try to post it on this website. Even if the Courthouse is open, if you feel it is dangerous for you to travel, please do not travel. I usually have email access at 341's so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot make it to your 341 Meeting. Unless there are widespread power outages we should be able to conduct 341's in inclement weather because they are conducted by Zoom.
