Those adjustments went into effect on April 1, 2103.  (See the blog post Bankruptcy Code Dollar Amounts Change.) Because of the adjustments, a number or the Official Bankruptcy Forms also changed.

Revised Bankruptcy Forms

The forms that have been revised include:

  • Voluntary Petition
  • Schedule C — Property Claimed as Exempt
  • Schedule E — Creditors Holding Unsecured Priority Claims
  • Statement of Financial Affairs
  • Proof of Claim
  • Statement of Currently Monthly Income and Means Test Calculator (the Chapter 7 Means Test)
  • Statement of Current Monthly Income and Calculation of Commitment Period and Disposable Income (the Means Test for Chapter 13)

There are a few others that changed as well. You can find all of the revised forms on the website of the United States Courts at www.uscourts.gov/FormsAndFees/Forms/BankruptcyForms.aspx.
