Judge Hollis’ office recently revised its application for approval of fees in Ch. 13 cases. Now
Cases filed on or after May 1
Attorney must file fee application per General Order No. 07-02. Fees up to $3,500 will be awarded through completion of the case without itemization as long as the application reflects that debtor entered into a Model Retention Agreement.
Cases filed before May 1
Attorney must file an application with itemization of time in 1/10th’s of an hour unless they choose Option A or B for flat fees per the Court’s Standing Order of 9/28/05. Other than filing fees, expenses must be detailed on an attached sheet together with a photocopy of the receipt for each expense or other proof that it was actually incurred and paid. Photocopying shall be limited to 10 cents/page absent proof of greater actual expenses. Detailed itemization of documents photocopied, including number of pages, must also be included.
