Hi from just answer. I'mCustomer I'll assist.
The court dies have the duty to provide you access to your bankruptcy file. You might have to go to the country clerk office and ask, and pay for the copier, but you do have the right to get those documents.
The trustee/referee does not have to comply with your request directly, but you certainly have the right to access all in your file.

From the Florida bankruptcy court website:
"How can I get a copy of a bankruptcy filing?
The federal judiciary proves public access to federal appellate, district and bankruptcy court documents through Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), an electronic public access service."

Since you are not in the state, I would try a phone call to the court that administered your filing and ask for assistance. Bankruptcy courts have special leniency toward their claimants, and might help long distance for free or low cost.
If they can't or won't help, getting the index number will let you make additional requests, including going so far as hiring a Florida notary to get what you need.
