I am a pro se chapter 7 debtor, after being granted a discharge, an alleged creditor made fraud claims in order to file an adversary proceeding being the time-line for such had passed. In this hearing, I made an oral argument and the Court suggested amending my schedule to allow the creditor to file an adversary proceeding. The judge ask the opposing counsel to draft the order of this ruling, however the opposition added elements to the order outside of what was actually ruled, additionally the opposing counsel cited a time-line of 120 days for the creditor to file this adversary proceeding. The opposing counsel tiled the order deriving from “debtor’s oral motion and used rule Bankr. R. 1009 which states a debtor can request to amend their schedule at anytime.
I wish to amend this order to reference what was ruled during the hearing and adjust that 120 time-line.
