Utah Bankruptcy Filing Requirement Changes
The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Utah has issued a Standing Order effective for bankruptcy cases filed after December 1, 2012. To avoid undue prejudice to debtors and for judicial economy, filing payroll advices or other evidence of payment needs to follow the following guidelines:
- Non filing of payment advices: unless the court directs otherwise, debtors shall not file payroll advices (“pay stubs”) or other evidence of payment. If the court does direct the filing of payroll advices, the debtor needs to remove reference to the social security number except for the last 4 digits. Currently, a Utah bankruptcy lawyer needs to provide pay stubs of the debtor and file it with the court.
- Submission to case trustee: now a Utah bankruptcy lawyer has 14 days of the petition date to send the payment advices either to the trustee’s mailing address or e-mail address for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 12, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases.
- Submission to United States trustee: now a Utah bankruptcy lawyer has 14 days of the petitioin date to send the payment advices to the United States trustee for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.
- Failure to submit to trustee or United States trustee: failing to submit the pay stubs or other evidence of payment will result in the case trustee or United States trustee filing a motion to dismiss or notice of failure.
- Submission to creditors: a creditor must request a copy of the payment advices or evidence of payment at least 14 days before the first meeting of creditors.
