REQUIREMENTS RELATED TO UPLOADING OF ORDERS: In our District, the case number includes the assigned judge's initials. With the appointment of the three new judges to the bench earlier this year, many cases were reassigned and as a consequence the case number may have changed. Before uploading an order for signature, please check the docket to ensure the judge initials on your order are correct. If you need to upload an order in a closed case which was assigned to one of the three judges who retired (Judges Baum, Case and Marlar) please first call the court's ECF Help Line at 602-682-4900 and indicate that the case may need to be reassigned.

REDACTION RESPONSIBILITY: All filers must redact: Social Security or taxpayer-identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; and financial account numbers, in compliance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9037. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments.

LOCAL RULE 1007-1 REQUIREMENTS: Local Rule 1007-1 requires that an original, signed Declaration Re Electronic Filing be filed in paper form with the Clerk's Office no later than 21 days after the date the petition was filed, or if an extension for schedules has been granted, no later than 7 days after the schedules and statements are filed. Failure to comply with this requirement shall result in dismissal of the case without further notice. The form in fillable pdf format can be found on the court's website at www.azb.uscourts.gov, under Forms and Publications.
