Most likely not. Court appearances in front of a judge are rare and usually only happen in very complex cases your attorney should be able to anticipate. While official processes can seem frightening, our bankruptcy lawyers and attorneys are there to help and guide you. You must attend a meeting with the person assigned to administer your case (Trustee), but not in court and not in front of a judge. At the meeting, you will be required to answer questions under oath but won’t need to dress formally, and our attorney will prepare you for the meeting and attend it with you. The meeting usually takes about 5-10 minutes to complete.
