Limited Use ECF Account
[last updated: 10/10/2013]

If you are not an attorney, trustee or examiner, you may benefit from having limited access to ECF for filing purposes. However, you do not need to register for a Limited Use ECF account if the documents you want to file electronically with the Court primarily relate to claims. The following documents can be filed electronically through the courtís website without an ECF account:
  • Proofs of Claims
  • Amended Proofs of Claims
  • Withdrawals of Claims
  • Claim Supplement - Notice of Mortgage Payment Change
  • Claim Supplement - Notice of Postpetition Mortgage Fees, Expenses and Charges
  • Claim Supplement - Response to Notice of Final Cure Payment
If you will only be filing documents listed above, then you do not need a Limited Use ECF account login or password; these documents can be filed directly through the Court's website with Claims E-Filing. All other types of claim actions or documents require a Limited Use ECF account to be filed electronically with the Court.

If you have any other type of claim action or document to file with the Court, including "Transfer of Claim", please fill out and submit a Limited Use Registration Form to the Court
