Debtors seeking bankruptcy relief are now required to use a completely new set of bankruptcy forms. The stated purpose of the forms is to obtain more uniform and better disclosure of information from debtors in bankruptcy. The forms have been substantially revised and overhauled, and the new forms went into effect December 1, 2015. The forms are mandatory for all new case filings. Unlike the previous version of the forms, there is a different set of forms for individuals and entities. While the new forms are complex, they do contain some helpful instructional information to assist debtors and practitioners in correctly completing the forms. Given the complexity of the new forms, as well as the short deadlines that apply for timely filing the forms with the court, it is now more important than ever to have the assistance of an experienced bankruptcy attorney help with your case.
