Yes, in both cases. For Chapter 13 there is at least one required hearing, the Section 341 First Meeting of Creditors (341 Hearing). The second hearing, the Confirmation Hearing where the plan is approved, can often be avoided if all requirements are met in advance of the hearing. If two people file, both are required to attend the 341 Hearing and must have their driver’s license(s) and social security card(s) in order to complete the hearing.In the case of Chapter 7, typically only one hearing is required, which is the Section 341 First Meeting of Creditors.In both cases the hearing will be conducted within a month or so of filing. As your counsel, we would be at the hearing(s) to advocate for you and advise you on the steps necessary to complete the hearings.
