The Judicial Conference of the United States approved several changes to the federal court miscellaneous fee schedules that relate to bankruptcy courts and become effective December 1, 2013:
- New $176 fee for the filing of motions for the sale of property free and clear of liens under 11 U.S.C. § 363(f).
- Increase in the records retrieval fee from $53 to $64 for the first box requested from the Federal Records Center, and a new fee of $39 for each additional box requested.
The Judicial Conference also amended the fee language regarding checks returned for insufficient funds on each of the court fee schedules. The prior fee language, which applies only to “checks,” was outdated, as check payments have now largely been superseded by electronic payments. Please note that there is no change to the amount of this fee.
