Subchapter V)
Notice of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Case
10/20
For the debtor listed above, a case has been filed under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. An order for relief has
been entered.
This notice has important information about the case for creditors, debtors, and trustees, including information about
the meeting of creditors and deadlines. Read both pages carefully.
The filing of the case imposed an automatic stay against most collection activities. This means that creditors generally may not take action to
collect debts from the debtor or the debtor’s property. For example, while the stay is in effect, creditors cannot sue, assert a deficiency,
repossess property, or otherwise try to collect from the debtor. Creditors cannot demand repayment from the debtor by mail, phone, or
otherwise. Creditors who violate the stay can be required to pay actual and punitive damages and attorney’s fees.
Confirmation of a chapter 11 plan may result in a discharge of debt. A creditor who wants to have a particular debt excepted from discharge
may be required to file a complaint in the bankruptcy clerk’s office within the deadline specified in this notice. (See line 12 below for more
information.)
To protect your rights, consult an attorney. All documents filed in the case may be inspected at the bankruptcy clerk’s office at the address
listed below or through PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records at https://pacer.uscourts.gov).
The staff of the bankruptcy clerk’s office cannot give legal advice.
Do not file this notice with any proof of claim or other filing in the case.

Time
Creditors may attend, but are
not required to do so.
The meeting may be continued or adjourned to a later
date. If so, the date will be on the court docket.
Proof of claim deadline
Deadline for filing proof of claim:
[Not yet set. If a deadline is set, the court will send

you another notice.] or
[date, if set by the court)]
A proof of claim is a signed statement describing a creditor’s claim. A proof of claim form may be obtained at
www.uscourts.gov
or any bankruptcy clerk’s office.
Your claim will be allowed in the amount scheduled unless:
your claim is designated as disputed, contingent, or unliquidated;
you file a proof of claim in a different amount; or
you receive another notice.
If your claim is not scheduled or if your claim is designated as disputed, contingent, or unliquidated, you must file
a proof of claim or you might not be paid on your claim and you might be unable to vote on a plan. You may file a
proof of claim even if your claim is scheduled.
You may review the schedules at the bankruptcy clerk’s office or online at https://pacer.uscourts.gov.
Secured creditors retain rights in their collateral regardless of whether they file a proof of claim. Filing a proof of
claim submits a creditor to the jurisdiction of the bankruptcy court, with consequences a lawyer can explain. For
example, a secured creditor who files a proof of claim may surrender important nonmonetary rights, including the
right to a jury trial.
Exception to discharge
If § 523(c) applies to your claim and you seek to have it excepted from discharge, you must start a judicial

Filing a Chapter 11
Chapter 11 allows debtors to reorganize or liquidate according to a plan. A plan is not effective unless the court

may have the opportunity to vote on the plan. You will receive notice of the date of the confirmation hearing, and
you may object to confirmation of the plan and attend the confirmation hearing. The debtor will generally remain
in possession of the property and may continue to operate the debtor’s business.
Discharge of debts
12.
Confirmation of a chapter 11 plan may result in a discharge of debts, which may include all or part of your debt.
See 11 U.S.C. § 1141(d). A discharge means that creditors may never try to collect the debt from the debtor
except as provided in the plan. If you want to have a particular debt owed to you excepted from the discharge
and § 523(c) applies to your claim, you must start a judicial proceeding by filing a complaint and paying the filing
fee in the bankruptcy clerk’s office by the deadline.
