Creditors seeking access to CM/ECF in order to file documents and receive electronic notice must complete the eTraining requirement to demonstrate knowledge of CM/ECF. Completing the process enables you to file the documents permitted by the court and to receive electronic notification of case activity. Creditors without counsel may become registered users of CM/ECF with limited creditor filing privileges permitting them to electronically file:
- notices of appearance
- change of address
- requests for service of notice
- proofs of claim
- notices of transferred claims
- withdrawal of claims
- reaffirmation agreements
- chapter 11 ballots
- other papers as authorized by the court
Bankruptcy Noticing Center
If you don’t choose to register as a CM/ECF creditor filer as described above, another option you may wish to consider is to register for electronic bankruptcy noticing with the Bankruptcy Noticing Center. Once registered, you will receive all notices (including attachments) served by the clerk’s office electronically instead of via US mail. For information on, or to register for this free service, contact the Bankruptcy Noticing Center at ebn.uscourts.gov.
Note: Notice served under this BNC electronic service option will not include all notices served in the case, just those notices the clerk is required to serve. You will receive service of all other documents in paper format by the party required to serve the document.
