1. Do I need to attach the B10 form as an attachment?

No - the fillable form will create the B10 form. Any attachments should consist of supporting documentation to the POC.

2. When will the claim appear on the claims register?

The claim will immediately appear on the claims register upon submitting the proof of claim.

3. Can I get a stamp filed acknowledgment of the POC?

Yes, the Court's claim number will display with a link to the electronically file stamped proof of claim upon submitting the proof of claim. The claim will be file stamped as of the entry date. It is recommended that the claim is printed or saved at this time.

4. Will the Trustee and the Attorney for the Debtor be served with the Proof of Claim?

Yes, they will receive electronic notification of the claim filed. You do not need to file a separate paper claim with the Trustee's office.

5. My attachments did not properly attach to a claim filed recently. How can I attach those PDF images of supporting documentation?
a) Reformat the supporting documentation to an acceptable format. It may be necessary that you divide the PDF image into multiple attachments.
b) File an amended claim and attach the correct PDF images.
c) Check the box that designates that the claim is amended. Select the claim number of the claim to be amended.
d) Attachments must be properly added by amendment as described. Amendments should not be attempted by faxing or mailing to the Trustee's office unless specifically requested.

6. Can I file a Proof of Claim for any chapter?

Yes

7. Signatures?

The filing of the claim electronically deems the claim signed by the creditor or authorized person.

8. How will I know the treatment of my claim by a Chapter 13 Trustee?

A motion to allow claims with the suggested treatment of your claim will be sent out after the proof of claim bar date has passed. Check the website of the Chapter 13 Trustee assigned to the case or contact the Chapter 13 Trustee's office.

9. How do I record the creditor address and my address as attorney?

The fillable POC form will allow you, the filer, to choose whether the claim is being submitted by the debtor(s) attorney, creditor attorney, creditor, debtor, or trustee. If the attorney is the filer, you will be able to add the attorney name and address and choose from the creditors in the case or add the correct creditor. Both names and addresses will be added to the mailing matrix and displayed on the proof of claim and claims register.

10. Can I include a separate address that payments should be mailed to?

Yes, check the box indicating that the Payment Address differs from Notice Address. An additional address field will appear for this alternative address.
