Uploading Creditors in CM/ECF

Rev. 1/15/2019



When uploading creditors in the CM/ECF system the document must be saved as a text file (".txt").  The .txt file should contain the name and address ("Information") of each entity included or to be included on Schedules D, E/F, G. and H.


Do not include the Information for the following parties:

  • debtor
  • joint debtor
  • case trustee
  • United States trustee


Effective September 1, 2016, the ECF filer no longer dockets the "Creditor Disk/Matrix Uploaded" event.  Instead, the ECF system automatically dockets an entry confirming the upload process.
