Offical Forms Changes Effective December 1
Most Official Bankruptcy Forms are scheduled to be replaced
with substantially revised, reformatted and renumbered versions
effective December 1, 2015, if the changes are approved by the
Judicial Conference at its meeting in September 2015.
The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts is currently working
with the software vendors so their programs will be ready to
generate the revised forms by the December 1 effective date.
We will provide additional information and guidance as the implementation date approaches.

ECF User's Manual
This manual is designed as a guide to assist registered ECF Users in filing documents electronically. Although filing requirements and references to the Bankruptcy Code and/or Rules may be provided for some topics, this manual should not be relied upon exclusively by the user. The actual Bankruptcy Code and/or Rules should still be consulted.
