    Answered . If you are referring to the meeting of creditors, and not an examination under Bankrtupcy Rule 2004, the trustee and/or his counsel can repeatedly continue it until they trustee has met his duty under the Bankruptcy Code to examine the debtor and his assets. The meeting of creditors is not concluded unless it has been adjourned by the trustee or his/her counsel. It's usually continued if the trustee has additional questions or has requested documents.

    Answered . Debtors exams can generally be scheduled as often as is reasonable. If new information has been identified, a new can also be scheduled. Your rights in a debtors exam are seriously at risk. If you don't have an attorney you should give consideration to getting one.

    Good luck.
