Certificate of Service

Rev. 5/24/2018


Standing Order Requiring Certificate of Service (2/1/2010)


A party must include a Certificate of Service ("Certificate") as an attachment to the pleading/document when a party provides notice of  the filing. Click here for an example of a Certificate filed with the pleading/document.


However, when a party fails to attach a Certificate OR when a party amends a Certificate, the filer must file the Certificate using the below event.


Docket Events:

[Bankruptcy> Other> Certificate of Service]

[Adversary> Other> Certificate of Service]


Because the Certificate is being filed separate from the pleading, the Certificate must:


  • have the case caption, including adversary proceeding information when applicable;
  • provide the method of service; and
  • identify all the parties served;(see example below).
