Notice of Submission

Official Procedure Last Change April 22, 2019

Notice of Submission

How to file:

Location of event: Bankruptcy > Notices & Certifications > Notice of Submission

Things to be aware of when filing: This event should only be used if no other option is available in ECF.


General Information

  • The Notice of Submission option can be used only when no other option is available in ECF. How do I know if there is a specific option available to use?  Exceptions: Notice of Submission should be used in the following circumstances:
    • If you are seeking, by means of a Motion to Remove , to remove a motion or application that has already been ruled on, you should file the replacement using the Notice of Submission event.
    • Submission of change of debtor's name due to marriage.
    • Notice of Withdrawal of Claim filed by attorney for debtor.
    • Withdrawal of an amended claim where the original claim is still valid.
  •  If the document you are filing will require a court order, the Motion for Authority event should be used instead of Notice of Submission (again, only if there is no specific menu option available in ECF).
