OCP Formatting

The Court has asked that all offices refrain from submitting Orders Confirming Plan (OCP) with text boxes and other complex formatting in the signature portion of the document.

These objects cause processing problems for the Court. The Court has begun rejecting orders that cannot be processed by their system.

Our version of the OCP is available on the Library link, on our web site.

Our form has been certified by the Court as functional; does not have any extra objects in the signature portion of the document.

Our version is simply the court’s version with the Trustee’s signature line completed.

Microsoft Word & WordPerfect formats on the Court's web site HERE.

We ask that everyone please review your OCP documents and make any revisions required. Orders that are returned to us by the Court will be returned to the originating office for correction.
