Changes to Official Bankruptcy Forms Effective Date: May 10, 2013

A number of the official bankruptcy forms have changed as of April 1, 2013. The Adminstrative Office of the Courts changed the forms to reflect the dollar amount adustments made to the bankruptcy code. The forms remain essentially the same, but with different dollar amount figures.

The forms that have been revised include:

  • Voluntary Petition
  • Schedule C — Property Claimed as Exempt
  • Schedule E — Creditors Holding Unsecured Priority Claims
  • Statement of Financial Affairs
  • Proof of Claim
  • Statement of Currently Monthly Income and Means Test Calculator (the Chapter 7 Means Test)
  • Statement of Current Monthly Income and Calculation of Commitment Period and Disposable Income (the Means Test for Chapter 13)

There are a few others that changed as well. You can find all of the revised forms on the website of the United States Courts at www.uscourts.gov/FormsAndFees/Forms/BankruptcyForms.aspx.
