Thank you very much for you answer. I would like to ask for follow up information please.
We filed chapter 7 pro se with the assistance of an online doc prep firm that was discharged in 4/08. We did not list an investment into gold option contracts that was made during 2005, because I thought that it was just a bad investment that did not come to fruition. In 12/08 we received a check for $14K from the CFTC as partial restitution due to the broker "embezzling" the funds. I was not aware of a case.
On the advice of a local attorney and a US Marshall, we turned the funds over to a new trustee in 3/11. I chatted online with the court clerk after the deadline to file claims on 10/11 and I was told that there were four claims, 3 credit cards, 1 of which turned into a judgement after our filing date and 1 small medical bill. The case is still open and I have not heard anything from the trustee since I sent her the check.
Is there anything I can do personally to expidite the closure of our case?
