Section 2004 Hearing

A 2004 hearing is like a deposition in a civil lawsuit. In a civil lawsuit, a deposition can be scheduled to discover evidence that is relevant to the case. A deposition is a scheduled date and time for questions to be asked of the party, when a court reporter would be present, and the answers are sworn to by the deponent.

Documents can be requested for production, and the deponent can be asked about the documents. Failure to appear at the 2004 hearing can result in sanctions and/or dismissal of the bankruptcy petition. Attending a 2004 hearing will result in additional attorney fees.
