Revised form NM LF 327 Order Approving Employment of Professional

Friday, March 3, 2023

The Court has changed the language in the last paragraph of NM Local Form nmlf327, which is a recommended form order approving employment of professionals, to delete the last paragraph and substitute the following language in its place:


Attorney must file fee applications so the period for which approval of compensation is sought (the “Application Period”) does not exceed six months. Each fee application must be filed and the related notice served on creditors and other parties in interest within 28 days after end of the Application Period. Failure to file a fee application and serve the related notice within the required time will result in automatic suspension of Debtor’s authority to make Interim Payments to Attorney prior to the Court ruling on the late filed fee application.” Fee applications must contain a detailed statement showing services performed by Attorney, compensation received, and any compensation previously approved.


The change is effective immediately.
