***BLAST EMAIL*** DeBN and GovDelivery 15-25

Thursday, November 5, 2015

Effective Immediately:

Debtors can now request to receive orders and court generated notices by email rather than by U.S. mail. This new free program is called Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (DeBN). Service requirements for other parties in a bankruptcy case do not change with DeBN. DeBN offers debtors a number of advantages

Debtors receive orders and court generated notices (e.g., deficiency notices, 341(a) meeting of creditors notice, order of discharge, etc.) by email the same day the court generates them, and the same day as the debtor’s attorney.
Debtors can access orders and court generated notices delivered through DeBN from a computer or mobile device that has an Internet connection and a free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
There is no charge to view or save emailed orders and court generated notices.
There is no limit to the number of times emailed orders and court generated notices can be viewed or saved.

To activate a DeBN account, a debtor must file a Debtor’s Electronic Noticing Request (DeBN)form. If both debtors in a joint case wish to receive emailed orders and court generated notices, each debtor must file a separate form. Once a DeBN request has been filed, the debtor will receive an email with instructions for activating their DeBN account. Debtors can file DeBN activation forms at any divisional office of the court or their attorney can file it electronically for them.

To obtain the DeBN forms and marketing materials for your office, please visit the DeBN web page on the Alabama Southern Bankruptcy Court website at: or attend the Filer Informational Forum to be held on November 13, 2015 at 1:00 - 3:00 PM - 201 St Louis Street, Mobile, AL 36602.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Alabama is pleased to announce that we have implemented a new email subscription service. GovDelivery will replace email blasts and make it easier for you to learn about updates on the topics which interest you.  We hope that you will find it useful to have the ability to customize your emails based upon your particular interests. As of December 1, 2015, we will not send out BLAST emails.  To receive future Court information, you will need to go to the link posted below and register.

With this new service you can password protect your subscriptions and preferences, change your email address, or remove yourself at any time by accessing your Subscription Preferences page. You’ll need to log in with your email address.  Be sure to save your changes, and look for a
confirmation via email verifying the updates you make.
