Stay Relief Settlement Orders

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

The court is pleased to announce the availability of a new text only event in CM/ECF that will generate a judge specific settlement order for the cure of post petition payment deficiencies in connection with chapter 13 motions for stay relief.  The event is titled “Request for Settlement Order on Motion for Relief from Stay.” The event prompts the attorney to provide the relevant information by completing pre-defined fields. The information is then transferred to docket text and a proposed form order is generated for and routed to the assigned judge. If signed by the judge, the order then appears on the docket and may be downloaded and printed as a PDF. Sample forms are available on the forms section of the Court’s website for attorney use in pre-clearing the settlement with clients. Further information can be found in the Participant’s Guide for the event. Attorneys may continue to propose paper orders, however you should note that the format and language of the CM/ECF generated order has been approved by the judge in your case and its use may avoid the delay inherent in a judge reviewing and possibly rejecting or setting for hearing non-conforming orders.<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
