On April 1, 2010, automatic adjustments to the dollar amounts stated in various provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and one provision in Title 28 of the United States Code will become effective. The amended dollar amounts will apply to cases filed on or after April 1, 2010. In the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1994, as amended by the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, and Pub. L. No. 110-406, (2008), Congress provided for the automatic adjustment of certain dollar amounts at three-year intervals. The relevant provisions are codified in 11 U.S.C. § 104(a).

Attached is a chart showing the affected sections of the Bankruptcy Code and Title 28 and both the current and the revised dollar amounts in those sections.
Amended Dollar Amounts from DIR10-032

Seven of the Official Bankruptcy Forms and two of the Director’s Forms contain references to several of the affected dollar amounts. These forms will be amended April 1, 2010, and will apply to cases filed on or after that date. The revised forms incorporating the changes will be posted on the bankruptcy forms pending amendment page of the Judiciary’s website at http://www.uscourts.gov/bankform/index.html.
