Forms for Filing A Bankruptcy Case
A combination of different forms must be used to file a voluntary bankruptcy case, including Official Forms for Bankruptcy Petition, Schedules, and Statements and Local Bankruptcy Forms. Specific requirements, along with the order the forms must be filed, are listed in the Pro Se Debtor’s Guide.
Official Bankruptcy Forms
Official Bankruptcy forms are approved by the Judicial Conference of the United States and are required to be used to file and take action in bankruptcy cases and adversary proceedings. For more information, such as instructions and committee notes, please visit the forms page on the United States Courts website.
The Booklet of Instructions on completing the selected forms for Individuals or Non-Individuals should be carefully reviewed before completing the forms. The Booklet may be found on the Filing Requirements page.
Local Bankruptcy Forms (LBF)
LBF forms are approved by the District of New Hampshire Bankruptcy Court. Each LBF is numbered to correspond to a related Local Bankruptcy Rule (LBR).
Proof of Claim Forms
Proof of Claim forms are often-used Official Bankruptcy Forms that may be filed by creditors in a case. Creditors will be provided with a notice if and when a Proof of Claim should be filed in a case as well as the deadline for filing a Proof of Claim. Instructions are included on Proof of Claim forms.
