Filing of Chapter 13
A bankruptcy case under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code
(title 11, United States Code) has been filed in this
court by the debtor(s) listed on the front side, and an order for relief has been entered. Chapter 13 allows an
individual with regular income and debts below a specified amount to adjust debts pursuant to a plan. A plan is not
effective unless confirmed by the bankruptcy court. You may object to confirmation of the plan and appear at the
confirmation hearing. A copy or summary of the plan, if not enclosed, will be sent to you later, and if the
confirmation hearing is not indicated on the front of this notice, you will be sent notice of the confirmation hearing.
The debtor will remain in possession of the debtor's property and may continue to operate the debtor's business, if
any, unless the court orders otherwise.
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 against the debtor and certain codebtors are listed in Bankruptcy Code
§ 362 and §
1301. 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.
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.
A Proof of Claim is a signed statement describing a creditor's claim. A Proof of Claim form ("Official Form B 10")
can be obtained at the United States Courts website:
(http://www.uscourts.gov/FormsAndFees/Forms/BankruptcyForms.aspx) or at any bankruptcy clerk's office. A
secured creditor retains rights in its collateral regardless of whether that creditor files a Proof of Claim. If you do not
file a Proof of Claim by the "Deadline to File a Proof of Claim" listed on the front side, you might not be paid any
money on your claim from other assets in the bankruptcy case. To be paid, you must file a Proof of Claim even if
your claim is listed in the schedules filed by the debtor. Filing a Proof of Claim submits the creditor to the
jurisdiction of the bankruptcy court, with consequences a lawyer can explain. For example, a secured creditor who
files a Proof of Claim may surrender important nonmonetary rights, including the right to a jury trial. Filing
Deadline for a Creditor with a Foreign Address: The deadlines for filing claims set forth on the front of this
notice apply to all creditors. If this notice has been 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
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 a discharge under
Bankruptcy Code § 1328(f), you must file a motion objecting to discharge in the bankruptcy clerk's office by the
"Deadline to Object to Debtor's Discharge or to Challenge the Dischargeability of Certain Debts" listed on the front
of this form. If you believe that a debt owed to you is not dischargeable under Bankruptcy Code
§ 523 (a)(2) or (4),
you must file a complaint in the bankruptcy clerk's office by the same deadline. The bankruptcy clerk's office must
receive the motion or the complaint 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, even if the debtor's case is converted to chapter 7. 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 objection 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
property claimed as exempt, at the bankruptcy clerk's office.
