New Bankruptcy Forms Become Effective December 1, 2015

The multi-year Forms Modernization Project will culminate on December 1, 2015, when virtually all of the Official Bankruptcy Forms and Director's Forms will change. Some of the changes are cosmetic, others are more comprehensive. Some forms will be abrogated, some forms are new, and some are being consolidated into other forms. Almost all of the forms are renumbered. To help you view at a glance how the new forms correspond to the old forms, we provide a Modernized Bankruptcy Forms Numbering Conversion chart. To see the new forms themselves and the Committee Notes highlighting the most significant changes, please go to http://www.uscourts.gov/rules-policies/pending-rules-amendments/pending-changes-bankruptcy-forms. We also provide you the following additional materials you may find helpful:

PowerPoint slides from the Clerk’s presentation to attorney groups in two formats:
color (easier to view electronically)
black-and-white (easier to print)
The 2015 Forms by Category Reference Sheet
A copy of the Official 2015 Bankruptcy Forms in CM/ECF Overview for Attorney slides prepared by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.p>

Also, if you are an attorney who uses a bankruptcy software package to prepare and file petitions and other bankruptcy documents, we encourage you to contact your software provider to verify that your software provider will offer an updated version of the software that will support the new forms. Some bankruptcy software companies have announced to their users that they will no longer update or support their software packages after November 30, 2015.
