Emergency Filing Procedures:  

The clerk's office is open for business Monday - Friday from 8am to 4pm to accommodate filings.  However, if you are submitting copies of supporting documents to an eSR submission, or an emergency requires the filing of a document and the clerk's office is closed, or the ECF system or applicable e-Service option is inoperable, you may use the Electronic Document Submission (EDS) system to submit documents to the court for filing.   EDS may only be used under the above circumstances to submit documents and pleadings with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

A deputy clerk will review each submission and contact you with further instructions and the payment of any applicable fees.
