After you file bankruptcy do you have to go to court?  


For a Chapter 13 bankruptcy you will have go to court for two appearances before your trustee, for the Meeting of Creditors and the Confirmation Hearing. 


With a Chapter 7 bankruptcy you usually have to attend one Meeting of Creditors before your bankruptcy trustee, which takes place 20-40 days after filing your bankruptcy petition. 


If you are seeking extra relief, other court appearances may be required. Your Discharge is entered after all required plan payments have been made and your certificate evidencing completion of the Instructional Course in Personal Financial Management has been filed.
