Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (“DeBN”)

The bankruptcy court has recently initiated a pilot program called the Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (“DeBN”). DeBN gives debtors the opportunity to request receiving court orders and court-generated notices via email rather than by U.S. Mail to their mailing address.
The court began testing DeBN on February 24, 2014, and the court will conclude the pilot program on May, 2014. The ability for the debtor to receive court orders and court-generated notices by email has several advantages:

-It’s fast – Debtors receive court orders and court-generated notices quickly, often on the same day they are filed.
-It’s convenient – Debtors can read and/or save the court orders and notices on their mobile device, iPad, and home computer.
-It’s free – Court orders and court-generated notices can be viewed an unlimited number of times on the debtor’s mobile device or home computer at no charge.
-It’s green – less paper clutter.

Attached  hereto is additional information about how both represented and pro se debtors can request having court orders and court-generated notices sent to them via email from the court.

If you have any questions about DeBN, please feel free to contact Meredith Klassen at (805) 884-4878 or via email at meredith_klassen@cacb.uscourts.gov.
