Modification of Deadline for Objecting to Dischargeability of a Debt

Local Rule Number: 
Rule 4007-1
4000 Series

The deadline set pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 4007(c), for filing a complaint objecting to dischargeability of a debt is modified in the following circumstances:

(A)       Meeting of Creditors Untimely Noticed.  If service of the §341 or post-conversion meeting notice is not timely provided pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2002(a), and as a result of this failure to provide notice the §341 meeting must be rescheduled before another notice can be served, the deadline for filing objections to dischargeability of a debt shall be 60 days after the rescheduled date of the §341 meeting.

(B)       Case Dismissed and Reinstated.  If a case is dismissed prior to the expiration of the deadline for objecting to dischargeability and subsequently reinstated:

(1)        in a case dismissed before the §341 meeting is held, the new deadline for filing objections to dischargeability shall be 60 days after the rescheduled §341 meeting, and the clerk shall serve a new §341 notice which notifies all creditors of the deadline; or

(2)        in a case dismissed after the §341 meeting is held, the new deadline for filing objections to dischargeability shall be 60 days from entry of the order reinstating the case.

2015 Amendment:   Subdivision (B)(2) is amended to conform to language of section to other similar local rules.

(C)       Notice of New Deadline.  The clerk shall provide notice of any new deadlines established under this rule.
