Mandatory Electronic Filing General Procedure Order 2008-5 Hits December 1

BANKRUPTCY PROCEDURE UPDATE:
NEW RULE ON PROOF OF CLAIM FILINGS

Query: ARE YOU “PAPER FILING” YOUR PROOFS OF CLAIM?
(hint: Not Anymore!)

Effective December 1, 2008, mandatory electronic filing will apply to creditors who file, on the average, two or more proofs of claim per week. This new rule is called General Procedure Order 2008-5.

In addition, creditors are required to complete the Court’s registration form, obtain a procedure manual from the Court and be assigned an electronic login, in that order.

Feel free to contact my office for help in the registration process. I’m also ready to help file your proofs of claim in the interim until you get registered and obtain an electronic login.

Just give me a call or email for further help.
