CM/ECF Tip: Amended Schedules

From the Central District Court News.  

For bankruptcy attorneys, the following is excellent guidance on filing with CM/ECF.

Filing Amended Schedules

When filing Amended Schedules D, E and F, select the event code Bankruptcy -> BK- Other– Amendment – Amending Schedules D,E,F for Ch 7, 11 &13 (fee). Please do not include any other schedules; you may attach a creditor list with only the new or amended creditor information. By using this code you will be prompted to pay the $26.00 filing fee. When amending schedules A thru I, please select the Bankruptcy-> BK- Other – Amendment -Amending Schedules D,E,F for Ch 7, 11 & 13 (fee) event code. Next, press and hold the control key and select each of the other schedules to be filed. The system will ask if the schedule is being amended and you must answer “Yes” to the question each time it appears. The question will appear once for each additional schedule being  amended. Using the correct event code will expedite case management and save money and court resources. Failure to file amended schedules properly will result in an assessment of fees.
