National Forms

  • Official Bankruptcy Forms  Most Official Bankruptcy Forms have been replaced with substantially revised, reformatted and renumbered versions.  These new forms must be used in all cases filed on or after December 1, 2015.  The use of the new forms in cases filed before December 1, 2015 is encouraged to the extent just and practicable.  (Go here for the Forms Number Conversion Chart)
  • Changes 12/01/2016 -- Several Official Bankruptcy Forms were amended effective December 1, 2016.  Forms 420A and 420B (Notice of Motion or Objection and Notice of Objection to Claim) were amended to conform to the numbering scheme of the Forms Modernization Project along with minor wording amendments.  One of the instructions in Form 410S2 (Notice of Postpetition Mortgage Fees, Expenses, and Charges) was amended to eliminate a possible inconsistency with Rule 3002.1.
