  • 341 Meeting Please Help

    I filed for chapter 7 in southeastern Pa 3/8/11. I haven't heard from the court or my lawyer about my 341 meeting date?? I'm very concerned. Can the case be thrown out before the 341?? if so I believe the court or my lawyer should have notified me correct?
    I've called my lawyer and of course he is not returning my calls.

    Thanks for your Help!

    do you have a PACER account? If not, sign up to get one, its free so long as you do not go over $10 in a quarter. You should've received notice by now as to when your 341 is; normally its within 45 days of filing. Are you certain your lawyer has filed your paperwork? Do you have a BK case number?

    Your lawyer should've provided you with a copy of everything submitted... do you have those?

      I just signed up one but, when I checked my case wasn't found? I checked using my name and social# as I didn't not receive a case number or paperwork that submitted. What I did receive was copy of what services that would be performed. I was thinking I had been ripped off but, checking the 341 meetings in my area I see that he represented 6 clients yesterday . So I guess the guy is legit and just dropped the ball in my case.

            Try going to the court house itself and have them look it up to see if it was actually filed.

              chp88, are you certain you are searching the correct court? If so, it sounds like your petition wasn't filed. You should be able to find it on PACER by using your SSN. I received notice of the 341 from the court (used my attorney's return address, but mailed by the court). Keep calling your attorney. If he doesn't return your calls, go to his office. Or talk to his secretary and ask her to check your file for your case number.

                  yes, i also agree, it sounds or appears as though your atty hasn't filed as yet.

                  i have heard many times atty's are now filing..i.e. 2x's a month to hold their court times down...(can you belive it!). i can believe anythiing nowadays.

                  first thing i would do is be on that atty's office until i got an answer!!

                  best of luck, i'm sure it's just a paper problem and it will be fine.

                    I just got back from the attorney's office as it turns out he said he never received my certificate of counseling which I know I gave. I came prepared with all my paperwork and give him another copy.When asked why he hadn't called me his response was we are so backed up "I'm sorry your case will be filed today". I just hope the rest of the process goes smoother. Thanks everyone for your help I really appreciate it.
