Will I Have to Go to Court?

Often, the most challenging part of bankruptcy is deciding whether or not you want to file for bankruptcy. After you file, the process runs relatively smoothly. An experienced Tennessee attorney can guide you through the process and answer your questions along the way.

At Kenneth C. Rannick, P.C., many clients are concerned about appearing before a judge, explaining their situation and listening to a horrifying lecture about financial responsibility. This couldn't be further from the truth. Most often, clients are required to appear in court once. This meeting of creditors, also referred to as a 341 meeting, is a brief, informal meeting. We will attend this meeting with you.

"Since 1988 I have filed more than 14,000 bankruptcies for clients in the Chattanooga area and helped them get out of debt. I can help you too — and do it affordably." - Kenneth Rannick

The meeting of creditors typically lasts for less than five minutes. You and your bankruptcy trustee will be in attendance. Often, your creditors will not attend the meeting. We will appear with you in order to resolve any obstacles.

It is important to remember that the trustee will examine your petition before approving it. If he or she detects any anomalies or discrepancies, you will need to answer for them. It is always best to be honest and upfront at the beginning of the process to avoid any uncomfortable conversations later on. List all of your assets and debt, and answer every question honestly.
