DeBN Requirements

Requirements of the Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (DeBN) program include:

1. Access to Reliable Internet Access

2. Email Account

Please be aware that the email address you use for your DeBN account will become a part of the official court record. A DeBN account will not be created if the clerk's office determines that the debtor's email address is inappropriate or offensive.

The Bankruptcy Noticing Center (BNC) will send you confirmation emails and court notices using these addresses:

Please add these email addresses to your contacts/safe-sender list to ensure delivery of court notices/orders to your email inbox.

Note: Please do not reply or send emails to the above email addresses. Those email accounts are used for the sole purpose of sending emails and the inboxes are not monitored. Please contact the Clerk’s Office if you have any questions about the DeBN program.

3. Adobe Reader

Court-generated notices and orders will be sent as PDF documents. It is recommended that you use the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader software for viewing these PDF documents. If you do not have this software, you can download it free of charge here.

If you are using a mobile device, please visit your mobile device’s app store for a free download of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

4. Debtor’s Electronic Noticing Request Form

Debtors requesting email delivery of court-generated notices and orders through the DeBN program must complete and file a Debtor’s Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing Request (DeBN) form with the court where their case is filed. Debtors can file a DeBN request form through their attorney electronically, or on their own by mail or over the counter at the Clerk’s Office.
