After a Chapter 11 case is confirmed, is possible to request for the judge who confirmed the case to be changed in order to not have to deal with the same judge later in case the debtor wants to make changes to the plan?

Pressumably, if you are in a confirmed Chapter 11, you have an attorney. Why are you asking this question here? Your attorney should be able to answer the question, and Mark is correct, the answer is no.

After practicing bankruptcy law for 28 years, I know of no procedure to "change" the judge after confirmation of a chapter 11 plan.
