Can I get my 341 Meeting of Creditors date rescheduled?

 

  • Yes, but it’s obnoxious.

    I have to file a motion to reschedule the 341 meeting and give the court a good enough reason that we need a new hearing date.  Most reasons do not suffice.  Elective surgery, mean bosses, family trips, etc. are not good reasons.

    However, I had a client miss her meeting today because she was in the emergency room.  That was a good reason.  The trustee will file a Motion to Dismiss (or refer it to the U.S. Trustee’s office with a U.S. Trustee’s Recommendation for Dismissal), and I will have to object to that motion and move for a new 341 date.

    Then, when I get back to the office, I have another client tell me that he’s getting married in about a month, and the odds are pretty good that when we file today, we’ll draw a 341 date right on his wedding date.  I feel good about filing a motion to reschedule on this one.

    So yes, you can get it rescheduled, but it’s a lot of extra work for the attorney, most attorneys will charge you, and you need a really good reason.
