Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
One question - - who sent the notice? Was this from a creditor, the trustee or what? Thanks.
Ok. Thanks for the information.
Generally, the Debtor or any party in interest has until confirmation to object to a claim. Of course, the court could order otherwise, but if there isn't an order in place that allows for post-confirmation objections, then you're likely currently out of time.
However, you could file a motion with the court (in lieu of this recent filing by the trustee) to re-open the time to object to claims and see if the judge will allow you to address these issues and try to reduce the debts claimed by the current proofs of claim.
If the judge denies your motion, then you'll be stuck with the numbers that are in place, unfortunately.
