At least in my district, reaffirmation agreements are approved or declined by the judge without a hearing. If you don't have an attorney, you should call the clerk's office and ask whether you need to be present.

They can be done telephonically. You will need to do it in the state where your BK was filed. Ask your attorney or the Court Clerk.

    Reaffirmation hearing can only be done at the same court where your case was filed. I assume you are asking this question because a reaffirmation has already been filed and a hearing is scheduled. If reaffirmation has not been filed, carefully investigate and consider whether reaffirming the particular debt in question is necessary or wise particularly if the result of the calculations at the bottom of Schedule J is negative.

    You can not have the hearing anywhere. The time has passed to do that if you have a discharge. If you don't have a discharge the motion has to be made in the court where you filed.
