A withdrawal of claim is typically filed when the claim was filed in error and there are no funds due the creditor. If you file a withdrawal of claim in a case where you have received distributions from the Trustee, the Trustee will contact you regarding a refund of those funds. The Bankruptcy Court has developed Local Form 50 to further ease the process of withdrawing claims. Filers should follow the instructions accompanying Local Form 50 to fill in the required information and then attach the completed PDF document when withdrawing their claim using eWOC.
An amendment of a claim is filed when there is a change in the amount due, the classification of the claim or if there is documentation that needs to be added or changed. If you wish to file an amended claim, click on “Proofs of Claim” check the box to indicate the claim is amending a previously filed claim; and enter the pertinent information on the claim form.
