Can businesses and creditor agencies file proof of claims electronically? Yes you can. The District of Colorado is now accepting registration forms from businesses and creditor agencies for limited access to Electronic Case Filing (ECF). By registering for limited access, you will be able to file Proof of Claims, Notice Requests, Notice of Assignment/Transfer of Claims, Notice of Satisfaction of Claims, Notice of Withdrawal of Claims and Reaffirmation Agreements.
Unfortunately, there has been misuse by certain law firms who file claims on behalf of their clients using the limited access E-Claimant login. Please be advised that we will no longer accept the filing of electronic requests for notice by law firms or the lawyers representing creditors using the limited access E-Claimant login. Depending upon the volume of documents filed by those attorneys, it may be necessary for them to complete training and obtain an attorney login to permit them to file an electronic request for notice on behalf of a creditor client. (In our Court, if you are an attorney and you file more than 52 documents with our court each year, you will need to complete training and obtain an attorney login. If you are an attorney appearing on behalf of a party and you file less than 52 documents with our court each year, you may submit the a request for notice in paper form.)
Please be advised that when we converted to CM Release 3.1 in mid-October of 2006, the "free look" feature changed. Previously, any recipient of a NEF (Notice of Electronic Filing) was allowed one view of the referenced documents without incurring PACER charges. Now, only participants in the case (parties or attorneys who enter their appearance on behalf of parties) will be given a "free look" while others will be billed.
On the web pages that follow, you will be able to sign up to file the above documents electronically. The electronic application form that follows asks for your business or creditor agency name and other pertinent information. Note: Each business or creditor agency will be issued one (1) login ID to be used by the business or creditor agency. In addition, all users within a business or creditor agency will share the same login and password. You will then be emailed a registration form along with a PDF file containing Procedures for Electronic Claimant Filers. Just return the registration form to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Once the court receives your registration form, you will be emailed your Login ID to begin filing with the District of Colorado.
