Meeting of Creditors

June 4, 2015

Did you know?

Bankruptcy proceedings are held in the Federal District Courts, therefore, all hearings are held in the Federal Courthouses as opposed to the county courthouses. Therefore, if an Olathe, Kansas resident travels to our Olathe offices to file his or her bankruptcy case, that client will have to travel to downtown Kansas City, Kansas to attend his or here court hearing, known as a “Creditors’ Meeting” or “Meeting of Creditors” or “341 Hearing”. So, even though our client is from Olathe and we have a law office in Olathe, Kansas, and the Johnson County, Kansas County Courthouse is also just down the road in Olathe, Kansas, both attorneys and clients must travel to the Robert Dole Federal Courthouse, 500 State Avenue, Kansas City, Kansas 66101 to attend the Creditors’ Meeting in our client’s case. Although this is sometimes frustrating for our clients who live near a county courthouse in Olathe or Independence or Liberty or Platte City or Harrisonville or other cities that serve as the county seat, everyone must travel to the Federal Courthouses for their respective state in either downtown Kansas City, Missouri or Kansas for their court hearing.

We want our customers to be armed with information so we like to communicate – letting our customers know tips like these is just one way we stand out from other bankruptcy firms. We’re truly “Here to Help!”
