Changes to Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule,

Effective May 1, 2013

The Judicial Conference of the United States approved changes to the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule.  Specifically, it approved increases to two bankruptcy fees to conform them with recently enacted legislation:

                                                                                    Current Fee                 New Fee (as of May 1, 2013)

Item No. 11 Fee to Reopen Chapter 9 Case               $1,000.00                    $1,167.00

Item No. 11 Fee to Reopen Chapter 15 Case             $1,000.00                    $1,167.00

The adjustment corresponds with an increase – from $1,000.00 to $1,167.00 – in the Chapter 11 filing fee mandated by the Temporary Bankruptcy Judgeships Extension Act of 2012 (Pub. L. No. 112-121).  These fees are linked to the statutory Chapter 11 filing fee and therefore needed to be increased.

The fee increases are effective May 1, 2013.

Also on May 1, 2013, a new fee goes into effect.  For filing a transfer of claim, a fee of $25.00 per claim transferred is due.  This new fee is Item No. 20 on the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule.

With this Notice, we include the complete Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule effective May 1, 2013.
