If you miss your scheduled 341 Meeting it is imperative that you speak with your assigned trustee ASAP and reschedule!

A non-apperance at your meeting can lead to your bankruptcy case being dismissed. This will not only delay your fresh start but you may incur additional fees and limit your protection from creditors while you refile.

Whether you have missed your appearance or know that you need to reschedule email and call your trustee and explain that you need to reschedule. If you need the contact info for your trustee you can contact the court for more info.

Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can't access their basic rights when they can't afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we're fighting this injustice.
