341 Meeting of Creditors
In most cases, individuals filing for personal bankruptcy in Erie County, Pennsylvania will attend their 341 meeting of creditors hearing at the US Federal Courthouse in Downtown Erie on Park Avenue. The Federal Courthouse is located in the square in downtown by Gannons’ Hammermill Center (be sure to bring quarters with you as the closest parking requires that you feed the meter).
Following the hearing, the length of time to the “finish line” and process can vary based upon the Chapter filed (see difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy) and the specifics of the case.
In the end, however, the goal is to obtain a “discharge” of specific debt, providing the debt relief and fresh start you were seeking when you first met with our office.
