In most cases, you never go to court for your bankruptcy.  You will, however, have to go to a meeting of creditors, which will also be attended by the trustee and any creditor who wishes to attend.  While this meeting can be intimidating for anyone who has not experienced one, it is short and simple.  The trustee will ask a few questions about your bankruptcy filing and your financial situation.  If complications arise or if you dispute a debt, then you may have to appear at a hearing before your bankruptcy judge in court.
