Comments being accepted on bankruptcy local rules

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The judges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana are considering amendments to two local rules: B-4001-3 and B-4008-1.

Revisions to B-4001-3 would clarify procedures on motions to incur debt in Chapter 13 cases, addressing the absence of trustee consent and notice to the trustee, according to the court.  B-4008-1, a proposed new rule, on reaffirmation agreements incorporates a current general order as to required forms and adds the requirement that counsel represent debtors in the reaffirmation process and at any hearing.

Comments are due Jan. 22 and may be emailed to or mailed to Kevin Dempsey, Clerk, United States Bankruptcy Court, Room 116, Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse, 46 E. Ohio St., Indianapolis, IN 46204.
