If you would like to be included, if you have previously requested to be included but you have an updated hourly rate, or if you would like to be able to refer to the mediators list, please contact Cheryl at

As you know, the Bankruptcy Reform Act now requires the filing of additional documentation, including as set forth in 11 U.S.C. § 521(a)(1). Motions to extend time to file schedules and statements must now clearly specify the particular documents beyond schedules and statements to which the filer is seeking an extension of time. Any resulting order will only address documents beyond the schedules and statements if the motion specifically requests an extension of time and specifically lists the documents beyond schedules and statements (i.e. “copies of payment advices” etc.). A general request regarding “Other Documents” will not be sufficient.
