Pending Changes in Bankruptcy Forms

Forms Effective December 1, 2019

Two bankruptcy forms are on track to go into effect this December.

The proposed change to Official Form 122A-1 adds an instruction to line 14a to remind a debtor that if there is no presumption of abuse, that Official Form 122A-2 should not be filled out or filed. The form will go into effect if approved by Judicial Conference at its September 2019 meeting.

Director's Form 1340, Application for Payment of Unclaimed Funds, is a new form issued by the Director of the Administrative Office of the United States that bankruptcy courts may adopt or revise as needed to facilitate requests for unclaimed funds.
