Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure Rule 3015(c) requires the court to either adopt the official form for a plan filed in a Chapter 13 case (Official Form 113) or to adopt a local form plan in accordance with new Rule 3015.1 (effective December 1, 2017).  The initial local plan was previously approved under Local Rule 3015-1.  Attached is a revised local plan form along with revised Local Rule 3015-1 that have been preliminarily approved for publication and comment.

By this notice, the court invites comments on the attached revised local Chapter 13 plan form and local rule.  The proposed revisions are highlighted.  The court will accept public comments for 30 days from the date of this notice.  Please submit any comments regarding this form on or before May 2, 2018.

You may submit comments by email to commentsCh13plan@areb.uscourts.gov or regular mail addressed to: U.S. Bankruptcy Court, 300 W. 2nd Street, Attn:  Chapter 13 Plan Form, Little Rock, AR 72201.  All comments should be in writing.

Public comments may result in further modification to the revised local Chapter 13 plan form and local rule prior to final approval.  Any non-substantive changes may be made without seeking further comment and will be reported to registered attorney filers via email.

Absent any further change, the revised local plan form and local rule will take effect upon final notice to the public and will be required for all cases filed on or after December 1, 2017.  Following final approval, the revised local Chapter 13 plan form and local rule will be posted to the court's website.
