The Judges seek public comment and suggestions on the attached proposed operating order which seeks to establish an efficient procedure for the payment of attorney's fees to debtors' attorneys in Chapter 13 cases. To the extent the implementation of this order will require changes to the form plan used in this District, those changes will be made after the finalization of the order.

The operating order was proposed after consultation with a working group of attorneys and trustees and after receipt of comments from the Court's advisory committee.

Comments should be forwarded to or sent by mail to Attn: Chapter 13 Fee Order Comments, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, 1100 Laurel Street, Columbia, SC 29201, for receipt no later than October 1, 2007. Comments may be sent anonymously by mail if preferred.
