After you file for bankruptcy, a meeting of creditors will be called. This is sometimes referred to as a 341 meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to verify the information contained within the bankruptcy petition and associated documents. It also gives the creditors the opportunity to ask you questions about your property, income, and debts. If you have secured debt, these creditors may ask you whether you plan on keeping this property.
