Rule 3020-1. Deposit; Confirmation of Plan – Chapters 9, 11, and 12

Part III. Claims and Distribution to Creditors and Equity Interest Holders; Plans

            A.    Deposit. The debtor in a case under Subchapter V of Chapter 11 must pay the trustee an advance fee and expense deposit within five days after the petition is filed and each month thereafter until a Subchapter V plan is confirmed. The amount to be paid is stated in Appendix H. The trustee must keep the advance deposit in a segregated account. The trustee may apply the advance deposit to any trustee compensation approved by the court. The trustee must return any excess amount to the debtor within ten business days after the court approves the trustee’s final application for compensation. The debtor must include the amounts paid under this Local Rule in the debtor’s proposed cash collateral budget.

            B.    Uncontested Confirmation Orders. In a Chapter 12 case if the debtor complied with Local Rule 9013-1, or in a Chapter 9 or 11 case if the proponent submitted a summary of ballots and complied with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2002(b)(2), the court may consider the requirement a hearing be held as met and may confirm the plan without further notice or hearing.
