Motions to Extend Time to File Schedules and Statements

Mon, 12/05/2005 - 4:00am

As you know, the Bankruptcy Reform Act now requires the filing of additional documentation, including as set forth in 11 U.S.C. § 521(a)(1). Motions to extend time to file schedules and statements must now clearly specify the particular documents beyond schedules and statements to which the filer is seeking an extension of time. Any resulting order will only address documents beyond the schedules and statements if the motion specifically requests an extension of time and specifically lists the documents beyond schedules and statements (i.e. “copies of payment advices” etc.). A general request regarding “Other Documents” will not be sufficient.
