The Colorado Bankruptcy Court And Your Meeting Of Creditors
Most people who file bankruptcy in Colorado do not have to appear at the Colorado Bankruptcy Court.
In most bankruptcy cases, you only have to go to a proceeding called the “meeting of creditors”, which is a short and simple meeting where you are asked a few questions by the bankruptcy trustee. While the meeting is held at the Colorado bankruptcy court (for people who live in the Denver metro area), the meeting doesn’t take place in a courtroom. In fact, judges are prohibited at the meeting of creditors.
Occasionally, if complications arise, you may have to appear at a hearing in front of a bankruptcy judge. In a Chapter 13 case, you may have to appear at a hearing when the judge decides whether your plan should be approved (although in Colorado that isn’t very often). If you need to go to court, you will receive notice of the court date and time from the court or your attorney who will help you prepare for your appearance.
