Dear all,

We have a few updates to share:

  1. In light of the new, temporary chapter 13 discharge provision, section 1328(i) (attached), we have created a new local form entitled “Motion for Entry of Discharge form (Section 1328(i)).” This new form is attached and is also available on our website in pdf and docx formats under: Forms & Procedures; Local Forms; Chapter 13.
  2. When filing a motion under section 1328(i), please use one of the following new event codes: (1) “Debtor’s Motion for Entry of Discharge Section 1328(i)- Individual Debtor in a Joint Case (Ch 13),” or (2) “Debtor’s Motion for Entry of Discharge Section 1328(i)- Single Debtor (non-joint) Cases (Ch 13).”  Motions filed under section 1328(i) will be automatically scheduled for hearing.
  3. We have also updated our form entitled “Motion for Entry of Discharge form (Completed Plan)” (attached).  Please make sure you use this updated form in the future when filing a standard motion for entry of discharge under section 1328(a).
  4. The Program Manager for our LMM Program, Default Mitigation Management, is increasing its Document Preparation Software Fee and its LMM Portal Submission Fee.  Fees will increase from $40 each to $60 each, effective this Monday, March 8, 2021.  We will update the LMM documents on our website to reflect this change.
  5. We have also added a cm/ecf event code for the new Director’s Form 4100S (Supplemental Proof of Claim for CARES Forbearance Claim), available here  The event is located under Bankruptcy; Claim Supplements; Supplemental Proof of Claim for CARES Forbearance Claim.  Our ePOC supplements program is also set to handle this event.

Lastly, please note that the Standing Order Regarding Limitation of Notice in Chapter 13 Cases, issued by the Court on January 25, 2021, only concerns the mailing of notices required by FRBP 2002(a).

Thank you!
