(c)  Service.  In addition to the requirements of 11 U.S.C. § 342(c)(1) and Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1009(a), upon the filing of an amendment adding creditors or parties in interest, the debtor must serve the following to the new creditors or parties:

(1)  the amended schedule;

(2)  the Notice of Amendment to Schedule, L.B.F. 1009-1.1;

(3)  the Notice of Meeting of Creditors; and

(4)  any notice of possible dividend or notice of a bar date for filing proofs of claim, along with a proof of claim form.

(d)  Certificate of Service.  The debtor must file a certificate of service showing compliance with this Rule with the amendment.  The certificate of service must be attached to the Notice of Amendment.

(e)  Creditor Requests to Modify Creditor Address Mailing Matrix.  If a creditor wishes to modify the address listed in the schedules or on the Creditor Address Mailing Matrix, the creditor may file or modify a proof of claim or file a notice of change of address and serve a copy to the debtor and debtor’s attorney.
