Hi JACustomer,
You have to do the following to have the case re-instated (Please note: for each of these forms, you have to change the court name to the Bankruptcy court you are using):

1) File a Motion to Reopen the Case:

I would like to know, about the motion to reinstate my case, dismissal is entered on 4/30/2012.
Expert:  cfortunato replied 4 years ago.

You have to file those 4 forms to re-instate your case. Filing those 4 forms with the clerk at the Bankruptcy court will result in a motion to re-instate your case.

Is there something else you would like to know about the motion to re-instate your case?
