Automatic adjustments will be made on April 1, 2010, to dollar amounts stated in various provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, one provision in Title 28, seven Official Bankruptcy Forms which contain adjusted dollar amounts, and two Director's Forms which include dollar amounts. The adjustments will apply to cases filed on or after April 1, 2010.

The Conference has delegated that authority to the Administrative Office. The revised dollar amounts were published on February 25, 2010, at page 8747 of the Federal Register.

The updated forms are: Official Form 1, Voluntary Petition
Official Form 6C, Schedule of Property Claimed as Exempt
