2011-4: Implementation of new Declaration by Debtor For Electronic Filing forms
The Bankruptcy Clerk’s Office has designed new forms NM LF 902 and NM LF 903, Declaration by Debtor for Electronic Filing, for e-filed petitions. These streamlined forms replace NM Forms 500-7, 502-7, 500-11, 501-11, 502-11, 500-12, 501-12, 502-12, 500-13, 501-13, 502-13, 500-not individual, 501-712C, 502-not individual, and 501-11C. This reduction of forms should simplify the task of e-filing. The new form may be used immediately, but is required for use as of August 22, 2011, pursuant to NM LBR 9009-1 . The new form can be used for any chapter and debtor type, is available in PDF, WordPerfect, and Word formats, can be found on our website at General ➝ Forms ➝ Debtor’s Signature Pages, and has been provided to the bankruptcy software vendors most attorneys use. Nevertheless, if you use a commercial software package to manage the e-filing of documents, please contact your vendor to ensure the form is available for use by the effective date.
We trust you will like these new, simplified forms. As always, suggestions for improvement are welcome.
