Official Bankruptcy Forms Must be Used in ALL Cases Filed on or After December 1, 2015

Monday, November 23, 2015

The Official Bankruptcy Forms have been replaced with substantially revised, reformatted and renumbered versions effective December 1, 2015. The new Official Bankruptcy Forms must be used in all cases filed on or after December 1, 2015. The use of the new Official Bankruptcy Forms is encouraged for all cases filed before December 1, 2015 to the extent just and practicable.

CM/ECF version 5.1.1 contains modifications to support the revised official bankruptcy forms. Attorneys should confirm with their bankruptcy software vendor that they will supply the updates necessary to support CM/ECF version 5.1.1.

The Court has also approved the extension of filing and response deadlines due to the temporary inaccessibility of CM/ECF beginning at 6 pm on 11/30.  Please refer to Order # 1:15-MP-00011.
