Electronic Filing for Creditors

Creditor E-Filing Information

  • Filers not admitted to practice in the Eastern District of Texas may obtain limited access to file certain creditor-related documents via TXEB's electronic document filing facilities.
  • Only Proofs of Claim, Creditor's Notice of Transfer/Assignment of Claim, Creditor's Withdrawal of Claim, Reaffirmation Agreements, Applications for Unclaimed Funds and Requests for Notice may be submitted.

Electronic Case Files (ECF) for Limited Creditor Filers

  • Allows you to file Proofs of Claim, Creditor’s Notice of Transfer/Assignment of Claim, Creditor’s Withdrawal of Claim, Reaffirmation Agreements, Applications for Unclaimed Funds and Request for Notice using a standard web browser. 
  • Provides immediate confirmation to you, and notice to other parties in a case, that a document was filed.

The court does not currently utilize ePOC, therefore all creditor filers must register for ECF.  To register for ECF:

  • If you do not have a PACER account, you must first apply for one.  Go to www.pacer.gov, click on Register, and then click on PACER.
  • Register for electronic filing privileges in the Texas Eastern Bankruptcy Court as follows:  Go to www.pacer.gov, click on Manage My Account, go to the Maintenance tab, and click on Non-Attorney E-File Registration.

Bankruptcy Noticing Center (formerly ​National Creditor Registration Service (NCRS)

  • The Bankruptcy Noticing Center  allows you to sign up to receive all of your bankruptcy notices electronically through the National Creditor Registration Service (NCRS) or consolidate all U.S. Postal Service notices at one address.  This is a free service provided by the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts to give recipients more convenient delivery options for their bankruptcy notices.  You can have notices delivered either:
    1. Electronically - Faster, more reliable and convenient
    2. To a designated mail address - Redirects U.S. Mail delivery to a preferred address
