Finding Instructions for the Forms

Official instructions for most of the revised Official Bankruptcy Forms are not available because they are "under revision." It has been many months since these new forms were first published and there's no word on when the instructions will be available. Links to the revised instructions will be posted here as they are available. The only instructional text posted are the committee notes from the congressional committees that wrote the law creating these forms. 

The basic forms that get things underway.

These are the forms that identify who you are, how you're giong to pay the filing fee.

(Forms B4 and B5 don't apply in consumer Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcies; they are for Chapter 11 and Chapter 9 cases for businesses and municipalities, like Detroit, Stockton, etc.)
