If you have a 341 hearing coming up, talk to your lawyer. If your lawyer tells you that you have nothing to worry about, then take a book. Otherwise, you will leave shaking your head over stories like this one:
Some time ago the first debtor on the docket (not my client THANK GOD) testified under oath that he owed mid 3 digits ($30,000 or MORE) in child support to each of three women (yep, that actually did add up to a total of 6 digits). The Trustee, of course, needed the Mother’s names and addresses to send a kind of special notice to that goes to child support creditors. The debtor didn’t know any of the Mothers’ addresses. He wasn’t sure which city any of the three women lived in (with his children). Although, he did know which Counties they each lived in, because DHS was collecting child support, or trying to, and they are organized into County offices. Oh, did I mention that he wasn’t sure about one child’s name? The really scary part was that his current girlfriend was there with him.
He didn’t have a good time. My clients were in and out in about 3 minutes. Well, three minutes after we sat through an hour plus long docket. We were dead last.
