You can file any amended documents at any time before your Bankruptcy case is closed - either before or after your 341 Creditors Meeting.
You have to send a copy of each amended document to the trustee and any creditor who is affected by the change, and file a copy with the court clerk.
can i email them to the trustee and then file them with the clerk? So I don't have to make so many copies again and postage? Or do I have to mail them with a Notice of Service to the trustee? And I have to have someone serve "Notice" by regular mail or certified mail to the creditors affected? or can i just email them too? This is getting very costly
1) You have mail a copy to the trustee and to any affected creditors - email is not sufficient, but it is not necessary to send anything via certified mail - regular mail is all that is required.2) Yes - you do have to submit Certificates of Service for all mailings to creditors (not for mailings to the trustee).
can my daughter sign and mail the copy to the creditors? And I have to mail all the amended schedules or can I just mail them stating the Schedules have been amended and they can look at Pacer
1) Anyone - including yourself - can mail the amended documents.2) You must mail a copy of the actual amended document(s). It is not sufficient to send a notice that the document(s) have been amended.
