Revisions in Title 11 U.S.C. Bankruptcy Code, Title 28 U.S.C. and Official Bankruptcy Forms - Effective April 1, 2013

On April 1, 2013, automatic adjustments to the dollar amounts stated in various provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and one provision in Title 28 of the United States Code will become effective.

The amended dollar amounts will affect seven Official Bankruptcy Forms and two of the Director’s Forms. These forms will be amended April 1, 2013, and will apply to cases filed on or after that date. Please ensure that your bankruptcy software programs have been updated to include the new forms.

The revised forms are posted on the bankruptcy forms pending amendment page of the Judiciary’s website at:
