Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (DeBN) - For Debtors Only
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9036, a party may make a written request for delivery of notices via email instead of U.S. mail. Through the DeBN program, only orders and notices that have been filed by the court can be emailed to the debtor. Debtors requesting participation in the DeBN program must complete and file a Debtor’s Electronic Noticing (DeBN) Request form with the court where their case is filed.
DEBTOR ELECTRONIC BANKRUPTCY NOTICING (DeBN) is a FREE and voluntary service that allows debtors to request delivery of court notices and orders from the bankruptcy court, through the BNC, via email instead of U.S. mail. By enrolling in DeBN, a debtor consents ONLY to service of court notices and orders filed by the bankruptcy court. The BNC, on the bankruptcy court’s behalf, will prepare and send the emails. DeBN has some advantages for debtors. For instance, notices received by DeBN are not subject to the limit on free-of-charge views, so there is no need to save the PDF.
No other parties, such as creditors and trustees, are allowed to use the DeBN program to email debtors — all other parties will continue to serve documents upon the debtor via U.S. mail.
What are the advantages?
• Faster — You will receive notices the same day they are filed by the court.
• Convenient — Access your notices anywhere you have internet access.
• No more lost paperwork — Storing notices on your computer means never losing a paper copy.
• Less paper clutter — Helps the environment and reduces paper clutter in your home.
• It is FREE!
