****** I wanted to give as much notice as possible that the Office of Chapter 13 Trustee will be moving locations and we will be closed on Thursday and Friday, January 28th and 29th.  I expect that with disconnecting and re-connecting of telephone and data lines, we will have very little access to communication on those days.  My staff is doing as much advance work as possible to prepare cases with hearings during the week of February 1st and whatever can be done by debtors’ counsel in advance would help with that effort and be much appreciated.

It is my sincere hope that this move will go smoothly, but I ask for your indulgence and patience while we navigate this transition.****** 

Thank you,

This website is designed to give attorneys, debtors, creditors and the general public information regarding Chapter 13's in particular, and bankruptcy generally. 

We are dedicated to providing friendly and efficient quality service to the bench, bar and public. We strive to treat all people with courtesy and respect in a responsible and professional manner.

The Office of Douglas W. Neway, Chapter 13 Standing Trustee, is receiving significant numbers of written informational notices from Bank of America ("BOA") each month about Chapter 13 debtors with BOA home loans pursuant to BOA's agreement with the Federal Trade Commission.  The Trustee understands that these notices are also mailed directly to each Chapter 13 debtor.  Based upon the Trustee's concerns about privacy and the recently amended Bankruptcy Rules addressing the proper procedures for post petition changes to mortgage claims, this office will take no action upon them.  When the Trustee's office receives such notices, they will be destroyed and discarded to maintain the confidentiality of debtor information.  Please contact the Trustee's office if you have any questions.
