DeBN Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing

Note: Only the court is authorized to send notices to the debtor through the DeBN program. All other parties, such as trustees and creditors, will continue to serve the debtor via U.S. mail or in person as required by court rules.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Ohio now offers debtors the opportunity to request receipt of court notices and orders via email, instead of U.S. mail, through a program called “Debtor Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing” or “DeBN.”

DeBN provides the following advantages:

  •     Faster — You’ll receive notices the same day they are filed by the court.
  •     Convenient — Access your notices anywhere you have internet access.
  •     No more lost paperwork — Storing notices on your computer means never losing a paper copy.
  •     Less paper clutter — Helps the environment and reduces paper clutter in your home.
  •     It is FREE!

Debtors requesting participation in the DeBN program must complete and file a Debtor’s Electronic Noticing Request (DeBN) form with the court where their case is filed.
