Rule 4003-1

EXEMPTIONS

  1. Amendment to Claim of Exemptions. An amendment to a claim of exemptions pursuant to Bankruptcy Rules 1009 and 4003 shall be filed and served by the debtor or dependent of the debtor on the trustee, the United States Trustee, and all creditors.

  2. Automatic Extension of Time to File Objections to Claim of Exemptions In Event of Amendment to Schedules to Add a Creditor. Unless the Court orders otherwise, if the schedules are amended to add a creditor, and the amendment is filed and served either (i) fewer than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the time set forth in Bankruptcy Rule 4003(b) for the filing of objections to the list of property claimed as exempt, or (ii) at any time after such filing deadline, the added creditor shall have thirty (30) days from the date of service of the amendment to file an objection to the list of property claimed as exempt.

Comment

     Subdivision (a) of this rule is derived from Former Local Bankruptcy Rule 37. See Bankruptcy Rule 4003(b), which permits the trustee or any creditor to object to the list of property claimed as exempt within thirty (30) days following the conclusion of the meeting of creditors held pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2003(a), or the filing of any amendment to the list or supplemental schedules unless, within such period, the Court grants additional time.
