3. Go to www.13documents.com to upload the completed form to the Trustee’s office (you must sign up for access if you have not already done so) — BE SURE YOU SELECT THE CORRECT DOCUMENT TYPE
4. FOR CONFIRMATION HEARINGS AND MOTIONS: Wait for the CM/ECF notice indicating whether or not the hearing was adjourned and, if it was adjourned, the new date and time, which may be different from the date requested
5. FOR 341 HEARINGS: You will receive a notification from the Trustee’s office as to whether or not the hearing has been adjourned within three (3) business days.

You will receive notification via CM/ECF when the adjournment request is processed and filed.

IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A NOTIFICATION VIA CM/ECF AND YOU DO NOT SEE THE ADJOURNMENT REQUEST FILED ON PACER, YOU MUST ATTEND THE HEARING.
