  Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (DeBN)

The U.S. Bankruptcy Courts encourage the bankruptcy community to utilize Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (EBN).  EBN is a free service, provided by the Bankruptcy Noticing Center, that allows Court notices to be transmitted electronically, delivering them faster and more conveniently...

DeBN is:

  • Fast - You will receive notices the same day they are filed by the court!
  • Free - There is no cost to a debtor to participate!
  • Convenient -  Access your notices any­where you have internet access!

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 notices and orders 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 Request (DeBN) form with the court.

Note:  Only the court is authorized to send notices to the debtor through this DeBN program.  All other parties, such as trustees and creditors, will continue to serve the debtor via U.S. mail or in person as required by court rules.
