News & Announcements: November, 2015
The new bankruptcy forms approved by the Judicial Conference take effect on December 1, 2015, and govern in all proceedings in bankruptcy cases thereafter commenced and, insofar as just and practicable, all proceedings then pending.
Debtors may use the soon-to-be-outdated schedules (Forms 6A-J) to amend the schedules in cases filed before December 1, 2015. Creditors may continue to use the soon-to-be-outdated proof of claim forms (Forms 10, 10A, 10S1, and 10S2) for cases filed before December 1, 2015.
The December 1, 2015 effective date for The Judiciary Conference’s approved changes to Official Bankruptcy Forms is rapidly approaching. Most Official Forms will be replaced with substantially revised, reformatted and renumbered versions. Attorney training materials are now available online. Revised forms and related information may be found here. Attorneys should contact their software vendors for further information and setup instructions.
The Office of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Clerk will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 26-27, 2015, in observance of Thanksgiving. Electronic Filing will be fully operational.
