On August 26, 2019, the President signed into law the Honoring American Veterans in Extreme Need Act of 2019 (the HAVEN Act) Public Law No. 116-52. The HAVEN Act Amended 11 U.S.C. § 101(10A) to exclude from the definition of Current Monthly Income certain payments made under title 10, 37, or 38 of the United States Code in connection with a disability, combat-related injury or disability, or death of a member of the uniformed services.
At its September 26, 2019 meeting, the Advisory Committee on Bankruptcy Rules made minor conforming amendments to lines 9 and 10 of the following official forms, to address the HAVEN Act:
- Official Form 122A-1 – Chapter 7 Statement of Your Current Monthly Income
- Official Form 122B – Chapter 11 Statement of Your Current Monthly Income
- Official Form 122C-1 – Chapter 13 Statement of Your Current Monthly Income
These forms went into effect on October 1, 2019 and will apply to cases filed on or after that date.
The revised forms are posted on the U.S. Courts website on the Pending Changes in the Bankruptcy Forms page.
