NOTICE TO BANKRUPTCY PRACTITIONERS REGARDING APPROVAL OF CERTIFICATION OF EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES

Local Bankruptcy Rule 1007-3(a) states that a debtor who files a certification under 11 U.S.C. §109(h)(3)(A) shall also file a motion for approval of the certification. The deadline to file a response to this motion is 10 days after service. If no timely response is filed, the certificate shall be deemed satisfactory without a hearing.

The bankruptcy bar is reminded that If no timely response is filed, the debtor should not file a certificate of no response and the Court will not enter an order granting the motion for approval of the certification under 11 U.S.C. §109(h)(3)(A).
