Last Updated: September 4, 2013

When a debtor adds creditors to schedules or the matrix after the original Notice of Meeting of Creditors has been served, or amends schedules to reduce the amount of a debt or reclassify a debt, the debtor shall serve a notice on added creditors that includes:

  1. The name and address of the trustee and debtor's counsel;

  2. (a) the bar date for filing proofs of claim. If the bar date has passed or will pass within 30 days and a creditor without knowledge of the bankruptcy is added, the notice shall provide that the creditor has 30 days after service of the notice to file a proof of claim; or (b) a statement clarifying that no date has been set or that it is a no-asset case and proofs of claim need not be filed;

  3. The deadline to file complaints seeking denial of discharge. If the deadline has passed or will pass within 30 days and a creditor without knowledge of the bankruptcy is added, the notice shall provide that the creditor has 30 days after service of the notice to file a complaint.
