EXPIRATION OF THE CORONAVIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY (CARES) ACT

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law on March 27, 2020 and included certain temporary amendments to the Bankruptcy Code.  See CARES Act, Div. A, Title I § 1113.  The COVID-19 Bankruptcy Relief Extension Act of 2021 was signed into law in March 2021 and extended the CARES Act’s bankruptcy-related amendments for an additional year. 

The CARES Act expired on March 27, 2022 including the bankruptcy-related amendments. 

As a result of the expiration of the CARES Act, Official Forms 101, 122A-1, 122B-1, 122C-1, and 201 have reverted back to the pre-CARES Act versions.  The forms can be found here.  The Notice of Mortgage Forbearance Event that was part of the lapsed amendments has been removed from the Case Management/Electronic Case Filing (CM/ECF) system.
