Article 208E: Making of debt relief orders

This Article makes provision as to the form of a DRO, including some of the matters which must be included in the order, for example a list of the debtor’s qualifying debts. It places the Official Receiver under a requirement to enter details of the DRO in the register of debt relief orders maintained by the Department. It makes provision for the steps which the Official Receiver must take once the order has been made, including giving a copy of the order to the debtor, and allows for rules to prescribe other steps the Official Receiver must take, in particular with regard to notifying creditors and informing them of the grounds on which they may object.
