Filing of Chapter 7

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 (or the existing case under another chapter has been converted to
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 with required original government−issued photo identification and proof of the
social security number (or, if applicable, Tax ID) 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 specified in a notice filed with the court. As mandated by the Department of Homeland
Security, ALL visitors (except minors accompanied by an adult) to any federal building or courthouse, must present
a current, valid, government issued photo identification (e.g., drivers license, state identification card, passport, or
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 case
is converted from chapter 13, pursuant to Local Rules 1019−1(E) and 3002−1(A), it has been designated as a no
asset case at this time. 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.
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 file a motion if you assert the discharge should be denied
under §727(a)(8) or (a)(9) −− by the "Deadline to Object to Debtor's Discharge or to Challenge Dischargeability of
Certain Debts" listed on the front side of this form. The bankruptcy clerk's office must receive the complaint or
motion and the required filing fee by that deadline. Writing a letter to the court or judge is not sufficient. The
discharge will not be issued until the Official Bankruptcy Form "Debtor's Certification of Completion of
Postpetition Instructional Course Concerning Personal Financial Management" is filed by the debtor.
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. 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.
Documents filed conventionally in paper may be filed at any bankruptcy clerk's office location. Documents may be
viewed in electronic format at any clerk's office public terminal (at no charge for viewing ) or via PACER ON THE
INTERNET (charges apply). Case filing information and unexpired deadline dates can be obtained by calling the
Voice Case Information System: (305)536−5979 or (800)473−0226.
