, A licensed trustee said:

Call the trustee that handled the bankruptcy and ask them what you need to do in order to complete the procedure. You can hire a lawyer if you don’t want to speak directly to the trustee, but you’ll end up paying both the lawyer and the trustee if you do…

This happens more often that it should – say one oout of every hundred people that file don’t complete the process. You will be penalized for not doing tihngs properly, but you are not the first person to do this, it can be sorted out.
