Revised Local Form 2831

Wednesday, January 3, 2018

All Chapter 13 Debtors' attorneys in the Eastern District, please be advised that the Court has revised Local Form 2831 (for use when the Debtor has completed the plan).  The revision is intended to clarify that the Debtor must check at least one box concerning payments "outside the plan".  The Debtor must certify either that there were no direct payments outside the plan on mortgages, car loans, etc. or that the Debtor is current on all those direct payments.  If one of the boxes is not checked, the Debtor cannot receive a discharge under Bankruptcy Code § 1328(a).  Please use the new form effective immediately.
