Invitation to Apply by June 3, 2016, for Membership on New Committee to Review D. Kan. Local Chapter 13 Form Plan

The Bankruptcy Bench Bar Committee for the District of Kansas invites you to apply for membership on a new, district-wide committee that is being formed to review and update the existing Chapter 13 Form Plan for the District of Kansas (adopted by Standing Order 12-1.) There is increasing likelihood that new Federal Bankruptcy Rules will eventually be adopted that will require each jurisdiction to use a national Chapter 13 form plan UNLESS the local jurisdiction has adopted a local Chapter 13 form plan that meets certain requirements. The new Chapter 13 Plan Committee will review the national requirements and assure that the form plan in Kansas conforms to the national requirements. The new Committee will also take a "hard look" at the existing Kansas form plan and recommend improvements. The new Committee will be formed effective July 1, 2016.

If you are interested in serving on the new, historic Chapter 13 Form Plan Committee, please send an email to David Zimmerman, Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by June 3, 2016.
