Electronic Filing of Proof of Claim
Effective Tuesday, November 12, 2013, proofs of claim may be created and electronically filed through the Court’s website, except in cases where there is a Claims and Noticing Agent assigned. The electronic filing of proofs of claim and amended proofs of claim is strongly encouraged.
A Proof of Claim may be filed electronically for all chapters, except cases with a claims and noticing agent. A login and password is not required.
The name and complete address of the creditor must appear on the proof of claim form. If an attorney is filing the claim on behalf of a creditor, the attorney should also enter his/her name and address. The name and title, if any, of the person authorized to file the claim is required on the claim form.
Please do not upload a completed Proof of Claim as an attachment to the electronically filed claim. Attaching a completed Proof of Claim will result in multiple versions of the Proof of Claim to be filed. If filing an Amended Proof of Claim, the attachment of the previously filed claim is allowed.
The filing of a proof of claim electronically on this court’s website shall constitute the filer’s approved signature and have the same force and effect as if the individual signed a paper copy of the document and the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 152 shall apply to such filing.
Penalty for filing a fraudulent claim:
Fine of up to $500,000 or imprisonment for up to 5 years, or both. 11 U.S.C. §§ 152 and 3571.
