Bankruptcy Forms to be Updated on Dec. 1, 2015

0 Comment

On December 1, 2015, a comprehensive set of new Bankruptcy forms were introduced and implemented nationwide across all courts.

The format of the new forms is visually different – including use of checkboxes and concise instructions. Other changes include:

  • Separate forms will be required for individuals versus non-individuals filing bankruptcy:
    • Forms for Individuals will start in the 100s
    • Forms for Non-Individuals in the 200s
  • Court forms in the 300s
  • Director’s forms in the 400s
  • Consolidation of several schedules
  • Dramatic changes to the SOFA
  • Several new forms have been added as well
