Proposed Amendments to Local Bankruptcy Rules - Dec. 1, 2017

Four local bankruptcy rules need to be changed in order to be consistent with the amended federal bankruptcy rules of procedure that become effective on December 1.  These are BKLR 1006-1, 3007-1, 3015-1, and 3015-2.  The biggest change is the adoption of a standard local Chapter 13 plan form that conforms to the new national Chapter 13 plan form.  This plan has two attachments to handle motions for request of valuation of a secured claim and  requests to avoid lien under § 522(f).  Under our existing rules, these motions would be handled with pleadings.
