Appendix

Instructions Regarding Creditors Matrix

In order to ensure that the cases you file can be properly read by the automated noticing system, your cooperation is essential. Please observe the following guidelines:

1. The completed original/amended matrix shall be saved as an ASCII DOS Text file, with the file name extension of ".txt," and submitted to the court via a 3½" diskette in lieu of a printed paper copy. A hard (paper) copy of the completed original/ amended matrix shall not be required.

2. Matrix must be prepared as follows:

  • One single column per page
  • 5 lines per address maximum
  • Special characters such as @$%^*()_+=|\:;""{}[]?~ are not permitted
  • City, State, and Zip Code must be on one (1) line
  • City, State, and Zip Code must be the last line
  • 1" page margins
  • Triple spacing between addresses
  • Maximum of 40 characters per line

3. Do not include addresses for the following people, as they will be retrieved automatically by the computer for noticing:

  • Debtor and/or Joint Debtor
  • Attorney for the Debtor(s)
  • Chapter 13 Trustee

4. A "Verification of Creditor Matrix" form must be prepared and filed as a cover sheet to the Creditor Matrix.

5. When submitting a supplement or an amendment to an existing matrix, list only the additional creditor(s) and address(es) on a supplemental matrix. When changing the address(es) of creditor(s), file only a completed Change of Address form and do not file an amended matrix.

6. An original matrix returned to you due to the inability of the Court’s computer to read it must be resubmitted as an original matrix and not as an amendment.
