What is the name of your state? nj, the hearing I have coming upon 9-8-05, 341 meeting, I have read on here someone asking about the trustee asking if they have sold or bought anything in the past several months, does that mean cash purchases? or anything bought or sold by the person who has filed bankruptcy? Also please will anyone tell me what questions will the trustee ask, I have read on here there seems to be some basic questions that are asked, and of course the trustee may ask other questions as well, right? Im really nervous about the hearing, thank-you for your help, I appreciate it, Janice

Not sure I understand the first question but, here are the usual questions asked at the 341.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

APPENDIX C SECTION 341(a) MEETING OF CREDITORS
(Individual Debtors)



REQUIRED STATEMENTS/QUESTIONS1

State your name and current address for tile record.
Have you read the Bankruptcy Information Sheet provided by the United States Trustee?
Did you sign the petition, schedules, statements, and related documents you filed with the court? Did you read the petition, schedules, statements, and related documents before you signed them and is the signature your own?
Please provide your picture ID and social security number card for review.
If the documents are in agreement with the petition, a suggested statement for the record is:
"I have viewed the original drivers license (or other type of original photo ID) and original social security card (or other original document used for proof) and they match the name and social security number on the petition.
If the documents are not in agreement with the petition, a suggested statement for the record is:

"I have viewed the original social security card (or other original document used for proof) and the number is 000-00-000. It does not match the number on the petition. I have instructed the debtor (or debtor's counsel) to file an amended petition by [date], serve all creditors and the standing trustee, and send a 'Notice of Correction of Social Security Number in Bankruptcy Filing' and a copy of the amended petition to the three major credit reporting agencies, and to the United States Trustee."
When the documents do not match the petition, the standing trustee shall attempt to ascertain why. The standing trustee also shall ask if the debtor has ever obtained credit or benefits, such as Medicaid or employment, using this social security number or any other-social security number.
If the debtor did not bring proof of identify and social security number, the standing trustee needs to determine why.
Are you personally familiar with the information contained in the petition, schedules, statements and related documents?
To the best of your knowledge, is the information contained in the petition, schedules, statements, and related documents true and correct?
Are there any errors or omissions to bring to my, or the court's, attention at this time?
Are all of your assets identified on the schedules?
Have you listed all of your creditors on the schedules?
Have you filed bankruptcy before using the social security number you presented today, the social security number on the petition or any other social security number not issued by the Social Security Administration? (If so, the standing trustee must obtain the case number and the discharge information to determine the debtor(s) discharge eligibility.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. The first ten statements/questions are required. The standing trustee shall ensure the debtor answers the substance-of each of the ten questions on the record. The standing trustee may exercise discretion and judgment in varying the wording of the statements/questions, if the substance of the questions is covered.
