Proof of Claim

For additional information and forms, go to Forms > Other Forms > Proof of Claim

IMPORTANT! If a claim lists both a payment address and a noticing address (see claim form box titled: Name and address where notices should be sent), please select and/or enter the noticing address for the creditor. The court uses the noticing address to send notices out to creditors.

NOTE: Prior to filing your claim please review the creditors list for your case to verify if the creditor's name/address is listed.  When filing claims creditor's name/address must match exactly as entered and shown on proof of claim.

If you have Debtor's Attorney filing access:

If the creditor is not listed, or it is listed but creditors address on the pdf does not match, you will not be able to add a creditor's address due to configurations within the ECF system.  Please contact the ECF Help Desk at (213) 894-2365 for assistance.

If you have Creditor's Attorney filing access:

As a creditor's attorney, if the creditor is not listed or listed but address on the pdf does not match, the Add Creditor hyperlink allows you to add a creditor to the case.
