Effective December 1st, 2011 the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure have been amended. Some of tehse amendments will yet need exploring as to the implications they may have on the debtor filing bankruptcy. Some are more important for creditors and offer the debtors more protection. The most notable rule amendments in my opinion for the common debtor are Rules: 3001, 3002.1, and 4004. A link to a brief summary of the rule changes are found directly on the Court’s Website.

It is important that you get qualified advice on these rule changes and how they may affect your case. We look forward to serving you.
