DeBN Requirements

Requirements of the DeBN program include:

1. Reliable Internet Access

2. Email Account

Please be aware that the email address you use for your DeBN account will become a part of the official court record. A DeBN account will not be created if the clerk's office determines that the debtor's email address is inappropriate or offensive.

The BNC will send you confirmation emails and court notices using these addresses:

Please add these email addresses to your contacts/safe-sender list to ensure delivery of court orders and notices to your email inbox.

Note: Please do not reply or send emails to the above email addresses. Those email accounts are used for the sole purpose of sending emails and the inboxes are not monitored. Please contact the clerk’s office if you have any questions about the DeBN program.

3. Adobe Reader

Orders and court-generated notices will be sent as PDF documents. We recommend that you use the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader software for viewing these PDF documents. If you do not have this software, you can download it free here.

If you are using a mobile device, please visit your mobile device’s app store for a free download of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

4. Debtor’s Electronic Noticing Request Form

Debtors requesting email delivery of orders and court-generated notices through the DeBN program must complete and file a DeBN request form with the court where their case is filed. Debtors can file a DeBN request form through their attorney electronically (Miscellaneous/Other>Request for DeBN Account), on their own by mail, or over the counter at the clerk's office where their case was filed (U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of Alabama Clerk's Office, 113 St. Joseph St. Mobile AL 36602).
