text on BC standard 13 Plan: This option refers to the text on the 13 Plan that reads

Print attorney name/bar # on Voluntary Petition page 1: Until the amended forms became mandatory in March of
1998, the attorney’s name appeared on both pages of the Voluntary Petition. The Administrative Office of the U.S.
rts decided that it was repetitive to have the attorney’s name on both pages, and removed the attorney name
from the first page. However, some local courts still prefer to have the attorney name on the first page, since this
page gives a brief summary of the whole case. In response to customer and court preferences, we now give you the
option of putting the attorney name on the first page of the Voluntary Petition. If you check this option, the attorney
name will print at the bottom of the filing fee section and on the second page.

Include attorney verification text: If checked, an additional paragraph will appear on the Verification stating that the
attorney has checked the matrix against the actual schedules and that the clerk can rely on the matrix to be accurate.
