How Email Noticing Works

Email Transmission  Email Format  Redundant Mode 

Email Transmission

The BNC will send an email to you when the creditor name and address supplied by the debtor matches the name and address supplied by you in this agreement. Emails contain a link to PDF copies of your notices. The following guildelines apply to Email:

  1. You have an opportunity to view and print PDFs without cost. If you prefer to save or print the file, you must do so on your first use of the link.

    It is the policy of the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts that you have only one opportunity to use this link. If you try to use the link a second time, you will be redirected to the court's fee-based electronic access service. There will be a cost of 10 cents per page to view and print.
  2. If the notices are not downloaded within 30 days, the free notice will not be available. You will be redirected to access the court's fee-based electronic public access service to view the notice.
  3. NOTE: Not all notices you receive in a case are processed through the BNC.

Email Format

Email recipients can select one of the following options:

  • Option 1: One email containing a link to a single PDF file. This PDF file contains multiple notices (example: 20 notices in 1 PDF file). This option will be used if no option is selected on the Noticing Agreement.

  • Option 2: An email for each notice with one link to a PDF file (example: 20 notices are sent as 20 emails, each email with one link).
    (click here to see example)
  • Option 3: An email containing multiple links to PDF files. Each link contains one notice (example: 20 notices have 20 individual links).
    (click here to see example)

Each email contains:

  • an envelope sequence number and your ID number. The sequence number increases with each message in order to help you track your notices or check for missing ones.
  • the original name and address, case number, court form code, originating court and title of document for each notice.

Redundant Mode

  1. Email service will begin approximately two weeks after you complete and return the Noticing Agreement.
  2. During the first 30 days of Email service, the BNC also will mail a paper copy so that you can confirm the process is working properly. The "redundant mode" begins from the date the BNC sets up your service, not the date of your first EBN notice.
  3. After 30 days, all notices processed by the court will be only available through Email.
