U.S. TRUSTEE PROGRAM TO IMPLEMENT VIRTUAL SECTION 341 MEETINGS OF CREDITORS IN THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
Thursday, October 19, 2023
Pursuant to its authority under 11 U.S.C. §§ 341(a) and 343, Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 2003, and other authorities, the U.S. Trustee Program (“USTP”) will implement virtual section 341 meetings of creditors (“341 meetings”) via Zoom for all chapter 7, 12, and 13 cases in all USTP jurisdictions.
The USTP’s transition to video 341 meetings will foster greater participation, result in substantial cost and time efficiencies for debtors and creditors, and better ensure the efficiency and integrity of the bankruptcy system. Once implemented, the U.S. Trustee may approve alternative arrangements for 341 meetings when extenuating circumstances exist that preclude a debtor’s attendance by video. In addition, in rare cases, the U.S. Trustee may determine that an in-person 341 meeting is necessary.
Debtors and other interested parties should follow the instructions provided in the 341 meeting notice they receive from the court, as well as additional instructions provided by the trustee assigned to the debtor’s case, to determine the proper procedures for connecting to the meeting. Please refer to the Middle District of Georgia’s Local Section 341 Meeting Information page for further district information, including its effective date and trustees’ Zoom meeting information. General 341 meeting information can also be found on the USTP’s Section 341 Meeting of Creditors Information page.
