Most Official Bankruptcy Forms are scheduled to be replaced with substantially revised, reformatted, and renumbered versions, effective December 1, 2015.
These new forms are part of a forms modernization project that began in 2008. The new forms introduce different versions of the petition, schedules and statements for individual and non-individual debtors. The new forms are designed to be easier for debtors to understand and complete, and to work with scheduled enhancements to CM/ECF.
The following official forms are scheduled to be replaced: 1, 2, 3A, 3B, 4, 5, 6 Summary, 6 Declaration, 6A-J, 7, 8, 9A–I, 10, 10A, 10S1, 10S2, 11A, 11B, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16A, 16C, 16D, 17A, 17B, 17C, 18, 19, 22A1 through 22C2 and 27. PLEASE NOTE that Official Form 23 is also among the forms to be replaced, but the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota does not require submission of this form, per Local Rule 1007-1(c).
In addition, virtually all the director’s bankruptcy forms (current forms 13S, 15S, 18F–18WH, and 104–283) are scheduled to be replaced by updated and renumbered versions.
Debtors' attorneys should contact their software vendors for more information.
