Q‐What do I do if I am changing Firms?
A‐ If an Attorney is changing firms he/she must send a letter along with new registration to the Court’s Director of IT that advises of the change. The CM/ECF account associated with the old firm will be deactivated and a new account will be created. The test will not need to be taken a second time. If the attorney is taking clients, consent to substitute attorney (File in CM/ECF using menu options Bankruptcy‐>Other‐> Consent to Substitute Attorney) will need to be filed in each case.
Q‐ What do I do if an Attorney leaves our firm?
A‐ If an Attorney leaves your firm, either suddenly or with notice, send a letter to the Court’s Director of IT that advises of the change. The Attorney’s CM/ECF account associated with your firm will be deactivated. In the letter you will need to provide a current email address to add to the account so that you will continue to receive e‐mail notification on cases associated with the attorney that has left. If the attorney leaves without notice you can call the Court to have the account deactivated and then follow‐up with the letter.
Q‐ What do I do if My Firm is moving
