What forms are required for a reaffirmation?


Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 4008(a), as revised December 1, 2013, requires that the reaffirmation agreement be accompanied by a cover sheet, in the form of Official Form 427.
On December 1, 2015, the Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts issued revised Reaffirmation Agreement forms (Director's Forms B 2400A and 2400A/B ALT).  The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota HAS NOT ADOPTED these forms. THE CORRECT FORM OF REAFFIRMATION AGREEMENT IS LOCAL FORM 4008-1 (which is the January 2007 version of the Director’s Form, without the Motion and Order).
Therefore, reaffirmation submissions in the DIstrict of Minnesota require:
1.   Official Form 427
2.   Local Form 4008-1
Failure to submit these documents, in these versions, may result in the issuance of a Notice of Deficiency. When amending the reaffirmation agreement to cure a deficiency, please file the entire corrected document, not just those pages that were missing from the original document or those that were originally submitted on incorrect forms.
