Electronic Filing Declaration / Electronic Filing Declaration of Authorized Signatory of Debtor

From the United States Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California, Court News.

An Electronic Filing Declaration must be submitted with every petition filed electronically.  The Declaration requires a holographic (physical) signature of the debtor and the attorney.

Any subsequently filed amended petitions, schedules, statements or plans must either be filed electronically with the holographic signature of the debtor(s) or accompanied by an Electronic Filing Declaration or Electronic Filing Declaration of Authorized Signatory with holographic signatures of the debtor or the debtor's representatives.

Electronically filed petitions and/or subsequently filed documents are considered deficient and a Case Commencement Deficiency Notice (CCDN) is issued if the Electronic Filing declaration and the physical signatures are missing.
