Chapter 13 Plan and Manual

Monday, March 13, 2017

The new chapter 13 plan becomes effective on April 1, 2017 and must be used in all cases filed on or after that date.  The new plan is on the forms page and  can be found here.   In cases that were filed before April 1, the same version of the plan that was in use when the case was filed should be used (for example, if an amended plan must be filed).

The Chapter 13 Procedures Manual was also revised and becomes effective on April 1, 2017.  The revised Manual is on the forms page and can be found here.   A list of the pages/paragraphs that were revised can be found here.  

Russell Simon, Chapter 13 Trustee, will be holding an instructional class on the new plan after court on March 20 in the East St. Louis courtroom and on March 22 in the Benton courtroom.  Chapter 13 practitioners are strongly encouraged to attend.
