The Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure were recently changed to increase the time for filing a financial management course certificate. Previously the filing of the certificate was required within 45 days of the first 341 meeting. This deadline has now been extended t0 60 days. Under the new rule, a notice must be sent to the debtor after 45 days reminding them of the upcoming deadline. The credit counseling certificate must still be obtained prior to the date of filing.
