You only need to file a proof of claim to the bankruptcy court if you expect to get paid. Sending a proof of claim to the debtor or even to the bankruptcy trustee would be completely ineffective, as would sending the claim to the assignee.

Yes, you must file the claim with the court within the bar date or it is not valid.

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are asking but it is absolutely imperative that if you're going to make a claim in a bankruptcy that you filed a claim with the bankruptcy court. If you designed the debt and someone else owns it you should be informing that person of the debtor's bankruptcy and they should be filing the claim. You have any questions please see counsel, for failure to file a claim means that the debt will not be recognized.
