General Information on the Iowa Bankruptcy Court Southern District
Our Bankruptcy Court is located at 110 East Court Avenue in Des Moines, Iowa. It is very unlikely that you would ever need to go to the court itself. Since most bankruptcy clients never go to bankruptcy court, this is not to be confused with the Federal Building where you appear for your Meeting of Creditors. The Federal Building is located at 210 Walnut, and your hearing is in Room 783. So be sure to go to the Federal Building, Room 783 and not to the Bankruptcy Court for your hearing.
Judge Hill and Judge Jackwig preside over our bankruptcy court cases, specializing in Iowa bankruptcy although they sometimes hear related cases that are brought within the confines of a bankruptcy matter, often involving business bankruptcy. However, the Iowa Bankruptcy Court Judges do supervise the bankruptcy cases and are available to you in the event a creditor violates the automatic stay.
Probably the best chance you have of seeing a Iowa Bankruptcy Court Judge is if you do not attend your Meeting of Creditors as scheduled. So plan to mark your calendar for your meeting and attend it and you should be fine and
never see the Bankrutpcy Court or Bankruptcy Court Judge.
