CM/ECF Tip: Credit Counseling

The Central District Bankruptcy Court provides the following CM/ECF tip for bankruptcy lawyers.

Certificate of Credit Counseling

When filing a petition, the Certificate of Credit Counseling must be filed as a separate event code. If the certificate is not filed as a separate event code, it will be flagged as deficient and the case will not be discharged. In a joint petition, two certificates may be filed under one event code. However, the certificates still need to be filed separately from the bankruptcy petition itself.
