Are trustee's able to assist someone who has filed pro se with making the necessary corrections to their paperwork?

Response from Michael Cotter, Chapter 13 Trustee for the Eastern District of Virginia:

"No. At the meeting of creditors, I will take time to explain to the pro se Debtor what are the deficiencies in the Plan and the Schedules. I will inform the Debtor as to whether a specific form or Schedules is missing but I will not assist the Debtor in making any necessary corrections to their paperwork."
