Thursday, March 24, 2016

On April 1, 2016, automatic adjustments to the dollar amounts stated in various provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and one provision in Title 28 of the United States Code will become effective.  The adjusted dollar amounts will apply to cases filed on or after April 1, 2016.

Please refer to the chart below listing the dollar amounts to be adjusted as well as the new, adjusted dollar amounts.

Please see to obtain the updated Official Forms with the new, adjusted dollar amounts.
