Court News:

ECF UNAVAILABLE FOR ELECTONIC FILING ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 1: Due to required maintenance being completed in the Phoenix courthouse on Saturday, August 1, 2015, the Arizona Bankruptcy Court CM/ECF systems will not be available for electronic filing between the hours of 4:00am to 5:00pm MST. The systems are scheduled for a read-only failover to support viewing of case related information and documents. Continue to monitor this page for status updates.

NOTICE OF REDACTION RESPONSIBILITY - CHANGE IN PROCEDURES EFFECTIVE MAY 14, 2015: Effective immediately this notice provides a change in the clerk's office procedures as it relates to redaction of personal identifiers. The Court reminds electronic filers of the responsibility to redact sensitive information in any document filed with the Court in compliance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9037. Any personal information not redacted is available to the public. The following personal data identifiers should be partially redacted from all pleadings, documents and attachments: Social Security or taxpayer identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; and financial account numbers. To the extent electronic filers rely on redaction by the clerk's office, please be advised effective immediately staff will no longer provide this review and the court will no longer issue notices advising of the same.

USE OF NEW FORMS REQUIRED BY MARCH 1, 2015: On December 1, 2014, new national bankruptcy forms revising the Statement of Monthly Income and the Means Test went into effect. As often schedules and other items are prepared in advance of a petition filing and to allow court users sufficient time to purchase and install updated ECF software, the court has accepted the older forms when filed. However starting on March 1, 2015 only the newer forms are to be used. If older forms are filed, the clerk's office will be sending out deficiency notices to filers and requiring the new forms. Here is a list of the most recent updated forms and a link to all national forms:

 B 22A-1Chapter 7 Statement of Your Current Monthly Income
 B 22A-SuppStatement of Exemption from Presumption of Abuse
 B 22A-2Chapter 7 Means Test Calculation
 B 22BChapter 11 Statement of Your Current Monthly Income
 B 22C-1Chapter 13 Statement of Your Monthly Income and Calculation of Commitment Period
 B 22C-2Chapter 13 Calculation of Your Disposable Income
