It might be dismissed, it's up to the trustee. Or, if the trustee suspects that you're hiding something, he might subpoena the records to go after whatever you're hiding.

Yes. I have not seen one piece of paper, but by the nature of your question, that sounds exactly like what will happen.

Possibly. It would depend on the nature of the amendments requested. Generally, trustees will delay your case until you comply with providing the requested documents until you cannot tolerate the pain of showing up over and over to meet with the trustee. Why are you not complying? Did you not understand that financial documents were a crucial part of any bankruptcy case?

    If the trustee wants to dismiss it, then the trustee will file a motion to the court and it will be dismissed. If the trustee wants it to remain open because the trustee believes you have assets that can be taken, then the trustee will keep the case open. The bottom line is that it is out of your control.
