  2. All Chapter 11 individual debtors shall file with the Court and serve on the United States trustee a certification that the debtor has paid all amounts that are required to be paid under a domestic support obligation that first became payable after the date of the filing of the Chapter 11 petition if the debtor is required by a judicial or administrative order, or by statute, to pay such domestic support obligation. If the debtor is not required to pay any amounts under a domestic support obligation, then the debtor shall file a certification stating that the debtor is not required to pay said amounts.

Advisory Committee Notes

2023 Amendment

The amended rule includes stylistic changes to refer to applicable forms and the Local Rules Links page that provides links to various Official Forms and Local Forms.  Concurrent with the drafting of this amendment, Local Form 11-13 (Chapter 11 Debtor’s Pre-Confirmation Statement) was created for use in Chapter 11 cases as a parallel to existing pre-confirmation Local Forms 12-13 (Chapter 12) and 13-13 (Chapter 13).

2020 Amendment

Excepting the relocation of former subdivisions (B)–(D) to new Local Rule 3018-1, the amended rule includes only stylistic changes. The format of subdivisions is changed to maintain a consistent style across all rules. Former subdivision (E) is amended to maintain a consistent style for references to the court’s website.
