Certificate of Service

Rev. 1/15/2019


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 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 provide:


  • a case caption, including the adversary proceeding information if applicable;
  • method of service; and
  • identity of all the parties served;(see example below).
