First step - Your Info





Last step - Signature

I, the limited filer, certify under penalty of perjury that I am authorized by the above-named entity to submit this registration form, and I understand and agree to adhere to the following:
  1. I understand that use of my login and password constitutes my signature on an electronically filed document for all purposes, including those under Rule 9011 and 28 U.S.C. § 1746, and shall have the same force and effect as if I had affixed my signature on a paper document being filed. Signatures will be indicated by “/s/” and the typed name of the person signing in the following format: “/s/ Jane Smith” on the signature line.
  2. I shall protect and secure the login and password issued by the court, and I shall be solely responsible to the court regarding each record entered into the CM/ECF system using my login and password. The login and password will be used only by me. If there is any reason to suspect misuse of the password, it is my duty to change my password and immediately contact the court to report the suspected misuse.
  3. I may notify the court to terminate my status as a limited filer at anytime. If I cease to be an employee or agent of the entity on whose behalf documents are being electronically filed with the court, or for any other reason cease to be authorized to file electronically on behalf of the entity, I will promptly notify the court.
  4. I shall maintain the accuracy of my account (e.g., mailing address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address).
  5. I understand that electronically filed documents requiring original signatures from any person other than me, must be maintained by me in paper form, bearing the original signatures, for two years after closing of the case or proceeding in which the documents were filed. Upon the court’s request, I must provide the original signed documents for review.
  6. I agree to adhere to all rules and procedures of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of New York concerning the use of CM/ECF.
  7. Limited filing privileges are narrow in scope. I will only use CM/ECF to electronically file the following:

    File a Claim, Transfer a claim, Withdraw a claim, Object to claim, Object to transfer of claim, File a Certification of Service, File a Creditor Request for Notices, File a Letter, File a Notice of Appearance and Request for Notice, File a Reaffirmation Agreement

    The court reserves the right to modify these options or add additional options as deemed necessary.
  8. I understand that using my limited filer account to monitor general activity in any case in which I have not filed a document is beyond the scope of my limited filing privileges. The limited filer account is intended for performing the specified transactions in Paragraph 7. In order to view and retrieve electronic docket sheets and documents available on CM/ECF, I will use PACER. [Note: A PACER login and password may be obtained from the PACER Service Center. Registration for a PACER account is available online at For assistance, call 1-800-676-6856.]
  9. If the court determines that limited filers may receive notices electronically, then I expressly consent to receive notice and service of pleadings and other papers by electronic means from the court and other filing users in all cases, except with regard to service of a summons and complaint under Bankruptcy Rule 7004, a motion initiating a contested matter under Bankruptcy Rule 9014, or a subpoena under Bankruptcy Rule 9016.
  10. At any time without advance notice, the court may, sua sponte, terminate my account for any reason and require future documents to be filed conventionally or in any other format specified by the court.
