Pending Changes in the Bankruptcy Forms
Forms effective October 1, 2019
On August 26, 2019, the President signed into law the Honoring American Veterans in Extreme Need Act of 2019 (the HAVEN Act) Public Law No. 116-52. The HAVEN Act amended 11 U.S.C. § 101(10A) to exclude from the definition of Current Monthly Income certain payments made under title 10, 37, or 38 of the United States Code in connection with a disability, combat-related injury or disability, or death of a member of the uniformed services.
At its September 26, 2019 meeting, the Advisory Committee on Bankruptcy Rules made minor conforming amendments to lines 9 and 10 of Official Forms 122A-1, 122B, and 122C-1 to address the HAVEN Act.
