24 Mar 341 Meeting of Creditors Questions.
People always want to know what kind of questions they will be asked at the 341 Meeting of Creditors. Did you know that every case trustee is provided with a list of questions that must be asked, as well as a list of suggested questions? Well, it’s true!

Keep in mind that the questioning IS NOT limited to the above questions. Be prepared for any questions that may come about. Furthermore, if you do not know the answer to a question DO NOT make one up. Your reply should be “I don’t know” or “I am unsure.” You and your attorney generally have ten (10) days to follow up on any question that the trustee may have. Sometimes the Trustee will ask questions but for no other reason than to see what you will say and the answer will have nothing to do with whether or not you can obtain a discharge.
The most important thing to remember in the words of Detective Joe Friday ” All we want are the facts, ma’am.” Listen to the question that is asked by the trustee, count to three and then answer the question that was asked. Do not story tell and do not tell the trustee what you think he or she “wants to hear.” Compile a list of questions that you think that the trustee may have concerns about and this will allow you to review these with your attorney ahead of time. Be prepared and show up with your listening ears on.
