Administrative Order FLMB-2015-8: Amended Administrative Order Prescribing Procedures for Chapter 13 Cases

From the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida:

After much work by the District's four Chapter 13 Trustees, the District's Steering Committee and the Judges of the Middle District of Florida, Administrative Order FLMB-2015-8 Prescribing Procedures for Chapter 13 Cases was entered on August 10, 2015. This order is posted on the Court's website and may also be view by clicking here.

The following is a list of changes occurring as a result of the new Administrative Order.

1.  Orders Establishing Duties of Trustee and Debtor currently entered on all new Orlando, Tampa, and Fort Myers Chapter 13 cases will no longer be entered beginning with cases filed on September 1, 2015.

2.  The Court will transition to using a new uniform District-wide Chapter 13 Confirmation Order over the next few weeks. A sample of the new order is attached here for your review.

3.  Orders Allowing and Disallowing Claims and Ordering Disbursements currently entered in Tampa and Fort Myers Chapter 13 cases, will no longer be entered upon the implementation of the new District-wide Chapter 13 Confirmation Order.

4.  A new District-wide Chapter 13 Model Plan is being implemented as of September 1, 2015. This is a required usage form. The new District-wide Model Chapter 13 Plan is posted on the Court's website and may also be viewed by clicking here.

5.  The Model Chapter 13 plan currently in use for Tampa and Fort Myers Chapter 13 cases will no longer be in use beginning with cases filed on September 1, 2015.

The Court very much appreciates the efforts by the Chapter 13 Trustees and the members of the District Steering Committee.
