341 MEETINGS DURING THE PANDEMIC
The U.S. Trustee Program has extended the requirement that section 341 meetings be conducted by telephone or video appearance to all cases filed during the period of the President’s “Proclamation on Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak” issued March 13, 2020, and ending on the date that is 60 days after such declaration terminates. However, the U.S. Trustee may approve a request by a trustee in a particular case to continue the section 341 meeting to an in-person meeting in a manner that complies with local public health guidance, if the U.S. Trustee determines that an in-person examination of the debtor is required to ensure the completeness of the meeting or the protection of estate property. This policy may be revised at the discretion of the Director of the United States Trustee Program.
Chapter 13 § 341 Meetings will be conducted remotely via ZOOM. In order for the hearings to be conducted, counsel for the debtor(s) must do the following:
- Complete THIS FORM.
- Upload the form to the Trustee’s ShareFile site under code 1066 no later than 7 business days prior to the § 341 Meeting.
- Review the ZOOM Videoconference § 341 Instructions.
If filing pro se (without an attorney) or if you are a creditor, please contact the Trustee’s Office by using our contact form.
