Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Ahh, this makes more sense now and I understand why you would not mind the case being dismissed. I also understand why the trustee has not provided the letter releasing the funds in the bank account.
The trustee does not know if the funds in the bank are exempt or not because the debtor has not filed the schedules. Once the debtor files the schedules then the trustee will release the funds.
If you do not want to file the schedules the case will be dismissed after the 15 days are up.
So, YES your thinking is CORRECT and the case should be dismissed after the 15 days are up.
Thank you again, please remember to press the ACCEPT button as that is the only way that I will get credit for assisting you today.
