Bankruptcy § 341 Meeting of Creditors Locations By County

While there is only one bankruptcy court for Colorado, which is located in Denver, where you live plays a big part in your case. Not only does it determine whether you’re eligible for a chapter 7 bankruptcy and dictate allowable expenses in a chapter 13 bankruptcy, but it also determines where your 341 Meeting of Creditors will take place. This can be helpful in choosing a bankruptcy attorney because if you live in Eagle County and your 341 is going to be in Grand Junction, it probably wouldn’t be cost effective to hire an attorney in Denver even though you’re there regularly.

The Colorado Consumer Bankruptcy Association has just published a helpful table which sets out the 341 Meeting location based on county, as well as addresses and maps for the different meeting locations. That post can be found here.

For more information about what happens at the 341 Meeting of Creditors, see this post and feel free to call The Law Office of Clark Daniel Dray at (303)-900-8598.
