USING ZOOM FOR 341 HEARINGS FOR CHAPTER 13 TRUSTEE – TAMMY L TERRY

The Office of Tammy L. Terry conducts §341 hearings via Zoom teleconferencing.

See the below instructions to participate in the hearings.

  • The 341 Room Assignments will continue to be posted to the “Dockets” page on our website.  The Meeting ID and Passcode for each Hearing Room A, Room C,  and Room D will be located on this Room Assignment for each hearing room.   We will also continue to post this information to the Detroit Consumer Bankruptcy Listserv.
  • Debtor’s counsel must share the Room assignment and the Zoom ID and Password information with the Debtor to allow for their participation in the meeting.  Our office will not provide the Debtor with the meeting ID or passcodes.  Be sure your client is familiar with and is able to use Zoom teleconferencing before the day of the hearing.  We strongly recommend debtor’s counsel practice with their clients before the day of the hearing.
  • We strongly recommend debtor’s counsel practice with their clients before the day of the hearing. However, if you determine after practicing with your client that the Debtor may have technical difficulties on the day of the hearing, we strongly recommend that the debtor come into your Office for the Hearing so that the hearing can move forward without delay.
  • Debtor’s counsel must provide our office with the completed Declaration regarding the Debtor’s Identity and Social Security Number Form within 24 hours before the scheduled §341 hearing.  This Form protects the debtor(s) personal information while allowing us to comply with the U.S. Trustee requirement to verify the debtor(s) identity and social security number before the §341 meetings.  Do not send the debtor’s social security card and photo identification to our office.
  • Creditors who wish to participate at a §341 hearing will continue to obtain the Room Assignments, Zoom ID, and Password from our Website under the Dockets page for the Hearing Room they wish to join.
