B-3015-1. FILING AND DISTRIBUTION OF CHAPTER 13 PLANS

(a)   Form of Plan

As permitted by Fed.R.Bankr.P. 3015.1, the Court has adopted a Local Form for the Chapter 13 plan (“the Local Form Plan”) which shall be used instead of Official Form 113.  Chapter 13 plans and amended plans shall use the Local Form Plan, which is available on the Court’s website or from the Bankruptcy Clerk.   

(b)   Extension of Time to File Plan

 A motion to extend the time to file a Chapter 13 plan must be filed within fourteen (14) days after the commencement of the case. 

(c)   Payment of Pre-Petition Arrearage through Trustee

If there is a pre-petition arrearage claim on a mortgage secured by the Debtor’s residential real property, then both the payment of the pre-petition arrearage and the post-petition mortgage installments shall be made through the Chapter 13 Trustee. Such disbursements shall be subject to the trustee’s percentage fee as set by the UST. 

(d)   Distribution of Plans and Amended Plans

The Chapter 13 Trustee appointed in the case shall distribute the original plan, the first and second amended plans and any related notice, and file a certificate of service that complies with S.D.Ind. B-9013-2. If service of the plan other than by first class mail is required by Fed.R.Bankr.P. 3012 or 4003, then the trustee may require Debtors to distribute the plan to that entity and provide proof of service to the trustee.  Debtors shall distribute any third amended or subsequent plan and any related notice, and file a certificate of service that complies with S.D.Ind. B-9013-2.
