Gain an understanding of what the differences are compared in the old and new forms for a proof of claims.

On April 1, 2016, the Judicial Conference adopted a new proof of claim form (Form Number B410) which replaced the old form B10 which had been in use since April 2013 to be used in bankruptcy cases through the country.

The changes doubled the length of the form and now include many new questions concerning the formulation and basis for the asserted claim.
