Upcoming Schedule

April 30, 2021 Lou Jones Presentation: Revised Local Chapter 13 Plan Form

Over the last several months, members of the chapter 13 subcommittee have met regularly to discuss and agree on changes to the Eastern District of Wisconsin’s local chapter 13 plan form. Changes to the plan form include an expansion of choices to indicate plan length and when the applicable commitment period begins in Part 2, and the inclusion of form language regarding participation in the court’s Mortgage Modification Mediation in the nonstandard provision section of the plan (Part 8).

Debtors will be required to use the newly amended plan form beginning June 1, 2021. Before then debtors may either use the new form or the current (2017) form.

The court will host a Lou Jones presentation to go over the changes via Zoom on Friday, April 30, from noon to 1:00. Anyone who will be working with and using the revised plan, including office staff, is encouraged to attend this Lou Jones presentation.

Details on how to join the virtual meeting are below. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

We hope to see you there!
