Portland Oregon Chapter 13 Meeting of Creditors

For every chapter 13 Case that is filed in the Portland area an initial hearing is set. This hearing is known as a "meeting of creditors" and chapter 13 debtors are required to attend.

For Chapter 13 cases filed in Portland and the surrounding areas the hearings are typically held about 6 weeks from the time the case is filed.

These hearings are located at the Chapter 13 Trustee's office at: 1300 SW 5th Ave
Suite 1700 Portland, OR 97201.

Although the debtors are sworn in and asked questions under oath, this is not held in a Court of Law.  Debtors are free to wear normal casual clothing and will not appear in front of a Bankruptcy Judge.
