Commencing an Adversary Proceeding & Issuance of a Summons
Prior to the implementation of ECF Release 5.0 on February 25, 2013, the court used a program that automatically generated and docketed a summons at the time a new adversary proceeding was electronically filed. Due to changes resulting from the upgrade to Release 5.0, that function is no longer available. As such, the summons is now generated by the court and should be available for your use on the court's docket generally within one working day after the adversary proceeding is filed.

Information for Financial Management Course Providers
Effective December 1, 2013, the amendment to Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1007(b)(7) provides an individual debtor the option of having an approved personal financial management course provider notify the court directly that the debtor has completed a post-petition instructional course concerning personal financial management.

Financial Management Course Providers wishing to file certificates on behalf of debtors must fill out the "Financial Management Course Provider Login/Password Application." That form and the instructions for filing the certificate of completion can both be found on the court's ECF page.
