We are establishing an office-wide policy to improve our efficiency and communication with the debtors’ bar. There is a tendency to initiate contact with the chapter 13 office for an upcoming Court list on the afternoon of the day before the hearing. This puts a strain on our staff and reduces the likelihood of a prompt reply.
To encourage earlier communication, we are requesting that any contact made for a weekly list be initiated at least 48 (business) hours before the list’s date/time.
If we receive such a timely request, then we shall commit to replying no later than noon on the (business) day immediately before the hearing. If a timely request is made and we fail to reply as agreed, please bring to the Trustee’s attention.
If a timely request is not made, and you receive no reply from us, then you should appear at the hearing.
In an effort to protect the personal information of Debtors, our office is utilizing Bankruptcy Documents (bkdocs.us)for attorneys to submit tax returns, 341 documents and pay advices to the Trustee’s office. Thank you for helping us protect that information. In addition to the bankruptcy documents we offer the following for your review.
