Default Not available to appear for bankruptcy court.

USA citizen with USA debt but now living in Canada as a Canadian resident, want to declare bankruptcy on USA debt. Not available to appear for bankruptcy court. (I am supposed to appear at least once for that one creditors meeting)

What can I do? Any good options?

Sorry, appearance is mandatory.

But there is another problem. The residency requirement.

If you want to get rid of your debts you have to play by the rules or bankruptcy is not in your future.

Default Re: Not available to appear for bankruptcy court.

I wish to inform you that when you file a bankruptcy case, probably the only time you'll come in contact with anything court-related will be your meeting of creditors (also called the Section 341 meeting). Section 341 requires that a meeting be held. Therefore, it is virtually impossible to obtain a discharge in a bankruptcy case without attending a meeting. If the debtor is out of the jurisdiction, and it is not likely that he will be in town within a reasonable period of time, the trustee may agree to allow the meeting by telephone or over the Internet. Since the debtor must be sworn in before he can give any testimony in the case, it may be necessary that a notary or other personnel with authority to administer oaths attend at the remote location. Debtors out of the country have used the facilities of the US Embassy or consulate in their location. In extreme circumstances, some trustees may agree to hold the meeting on interrogatories. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.

If you are planning to return to USA you can file bankruptcy at that time so that you can ensure your presence in the court. If you don't have any assets that your creditors can seize or attach, then there is no need to file bankruptcy.
