RE: Motion to Reopen a Chapter 9 or Chapter 15 Bankruptcy Case

The Judicial Conference has approved an amendment raising the fee for filing a motion to reopen a Chapter 9 or Chapter 15 bankruptcy case from $1000.00 to $1,167.00 as set forth in Item 11 of the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule. These fees are linked to the statutory Chapter 11 filing fee and the adjustment corresponds with the increase in the Chapter 11 filing fee mandated by the Temporary Bankruptcy Judgeships Extension Act of 2012. This change becomes effective May 1, 2013.
