Court News

Administrative Manual - Updates have been made to the Court's Administrative Manual including a new Local Form Z and other matters pertaining to the new Bankruptcy Rules effective December 1, 2017.  Please review the What's New page for further information.

Chapter 13 Plan Official Form and Rules Changes Effective 12/1/2017: In compliance with the amended Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedures which take effect on December 1, 2017, and specifically BR 3015 and the new 3015.1, the Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Kentucky has elected to adopt the official bankruptcy form for the Chapter 13 Plan. Practitioners may - but are not required to - elect to begin using the new plan prior to the December 1, 2017 effective date. For Chapter 13 cases filed on or after December 1, however, the use of Official Form 113 will be required for the plan to be confirmed. Practitioners should also note that the Court intends to review the new plan in approximately six months from implementation to see what, if any, changes should be made to facilitate Chapter 13 bankruptcy practice in the Western District of Kentucky.
