Consumer Bankruptcy Journal Fall 2015 - Page 95

Form Modernization Overview Official Form 101 Overview: Official Form 101, Voluntary Petition for Individuals Filing for Bankruptcy, replaces Official Form 1, Voluntary Petition. New Form Elements: Official Form 101 has been substantially reorganized. References to Exhibits A, B, C, and D, and the exhibits themselves, have been eliminated because the requested information is now asked in the form or is not applicable to individual debtors. Part 1, Identify Yourself, line 6, replaces the venue box from page 2 of Official Form 1 and deletes venue questions that pertain only to non-individuals. REVISED – Line #6 replaces the Venue section from page 2 of Official Form 1 and removes the venue questions that pertain only to non-individuals and adds option for “another reason” and room to explain that reason. © 2015 CINgroup.
