                         (2)          The court shall not extend the date for filing schedules, statements, and documents to a date within 7 days of the 11 U.S.C. § 341 meeting of creditors, unless the debtor has arranged with either the trustee or the United States trustee for a continuance of the meeting and mails to all creditors notice of the continuance of the meeting and the extension of time to file schedules and statements.

                         (3)           Debtors on active military duty must so indicate on Schedule I, and those going on active duty or being deployed for a period of 14 days or more after the filing of the petition must file notice setting forth the beginning and end dates of the active duty or deployment, and any new or additional address, attaching a copy of the orders to or official documentation of the active duty or deployment with social security numbers redacted to show only the last four digits, and the names (other than the issuing official) and social security numbers of any non-debtors completely redacted.

          (b)          Schedules Required in Converted Cases.  Where a chapter 7, chapter 13, chapter 12, or individual chapter 11 case is converted to another chapter, the debtor shall be required to file amended schedules, statements, and documents required by Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1007(b)(1), (4), (5), and (6), or a declaration under penalty of perjury that there has been no change in the schedules, statements, and documents.
