The mandatory chapter 13 form plan for Kansas has been tweaked by the bankruptcy court. The changes go into effect for cases filed on or after December 1, 2012, per the standing order 12-1. The changes were made after receiving recommendations from the bench-bar committee.

8. RELIEF FROM STAY REGARDING PROPERTY TO BE SURRENDERED: On Plan confirmation, any creditorÂ may repossess, foreclose upon, sell or obtain possession of the property the Plan proposes toÂ surrender without obtaining stay relief.Â This provision does not prevent the earlier termination of the stay under operation of law or courtÂ order. Nothing contained in this section operates to permit in personam relief, modify anyÂ applicable co-Debtor stay or to abrogate Debtorâ€™s rights and remedies under non-bankruptcy law.Â The trustee shall not make distributions on account of any securedÂ claim in this class.
