Pending Changes in Bankruptcy Forms

The following changes will be made to our Court’s CM/ECF System on December 1, 2018.
Rule 3002.1 Claim Supplements (Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3002.1(b)(1))

Notice of Payment Changes that arise from a home-equity line of credit (HELOC) should be filed in the same manner as Notice of Payment Changes that arise from a mortgage.  

For Creditors, use the Rule 3002.1 Claim Supplement program and the radio button option for Supplement 1 – Notice of Mortgage Payment Change (also includes HELOCS).

For ECF filers, use the appropriate event located in the 3002 Claim Supplements menu in CM/ECF.  Use either Notice of Mortgage Payment Change – Rule 3002.1 (also includes HELOCS)or Notice of Mortgage Payment Change NO POC Filed – Rule 3002.1 (also includes HELOCS).

The following two events will also be added for ECF filers.

  1. Motions/Applications > Determine Validity of Payment Change (Rule 3002.1 event) – Added for use by parties to object to a payment change. (Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3002.1(b)(2))
  2. Appeal > Supplemental Statement by a Party re: Certification of Direct Appeal – Added for use by parties to file a short supplemental statement regarding the merits of the certification. (Fed. R. Bankr. P. 8006(e)(2))
