Questions asked by the Chapter 7 Trustee at the 341 Meeting of Creditors
It’s important to know the answers to the Chapter 7 Trustee’s questions ahead of time so that you are fully prepared for your 341 Meeting of Creditors. I spend time with each client ensuring that they know and understand both the question and answer to ensure that they spend the least time possible at their 341 meeting as most of clients don’t want to be their in the first place.
