Filing of Chapter 7
FORM B9A (12/12)
A bankruptcy case under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code
(title 11, United States Code) has been filed in this court
by or against the debtor(s) listed on the front side, and an order for relief has been entered.
The staff of the bankruptcy clerk's office cannot give legal advice. Consult a lawyer to determine your rights in
May Not Take Certain
Prohibited collection actions are listed in Bankruptcy Code
§362. Common examples of prohibited actions include
contacting the debtor by telephone, mail or otherwise to demand repayment; taking actions to collect money or
obtain property from the debtor; repossessing the debtor's property; starting or continuing lawsuits or foreclosures;
and garnishing or deducting from the debtor's wages. Under certain circumstances, the stay may be limited to 30
days or not exist at all, although the debtor can request the court to extend or impose a stay.
Presumption of Abuse If the presumption of abuse arises, creditors may have the right to file a motion to dismiss the case under § 707(b) of
the Bankruptcy Code
. The debtor may rebut the presumption by showing special circumstances.
Meeting of Creditors A meeting of creditors is scheduled for the date, time and location listed on the front side. The debtor (both spouses
in a joint case) must be present at the meeting to be questioned under oath by the trustee and by creditors. Creditors
are welcome to attend, but are not required to do so. The meeting may be continued and concluded at a later date
without further notice.
There does not appear to be any property available to the trustee to pay creditors. You therefore should not file a
proof of claim at this time. If it later appears that assets are available to pay creditors, you will be sent another notice
telling you that you may file a proof of claim, and telling you the deadline for filing your proof of claim. If this
notice is mailed to a creditor at a foreign address, the creditor may file a motion requesting the court to extend the
deadline. Do not include this notice with any filing you make with the court.
Do Not File a Proof of
Claim at This Time
Discharge of Debts The debtor is seeking a discharge of most debts, which may include your debt. A discharge means that you may
never try to collect the debt from the debtor. If you believe that the debtor is not entitled to receive a discharge under
Bankruptcy Code §727(a) or that a debt owed to you is not dischargeable under Bankruptcy Code
§523(a)(2), (4), or
(6), you must start a lawsuit by filing a complaint − or a motion if you assert the discharge should be denied under
§727(a)(8) or (a)(9) −in the bankruptcy clerk's office by the "Deadline to File a Complaint Objecting to Discharge of
the Debtor or to Challenge Dischargeability of Certain Debts" listed on the front side. The bankruptcy clerk's office
must receive the complaint or motion and any required filing fee by that Deadline.
The debtor is permitted by law to keep certain property as exempt. Exempt property will not be sold and distributed
to creditors. The debtor must file a list of all property claimed as exempt. You may inspect that list at the bankruptcy
clerk's office. If you believe that an exemption claimed by the debtor is not authorized by law, you may file an
objection to that exemption. The bankruptcy clerk's office must receive the objections by the "Deadline to Object to
Exemptions" listed on the front side.
Any paper that you file in this bankruptcy case should be filed at the bankruptcy clerk's office at the address listed
on the front side. You may inspect all papers filed, including the list of the debtor's property and debts and the list of
the property claimed as exempt, at the bankruptcy clerk's office.
