Proof of claim deadline

Deadline for filing proof of claim: October 2, 2023

For a governmental unit: 180 days from the date of filing

A proof of claim is a signed statement describing a creditor's claim. A proof of claim form may be filed
online at the Court's website at https://pacer.flmb.uscourts.gov/cmecf/proofofclaim.htm, or obtained at www.uscourts.gov or at any
bankruptcy clerk's office.

Your claim will be allowed in the amount scheduled unless:

  • your claim is designated as disputed, contingent, or unliquidated;
  • you file a proof of claim in a different amount; or
  • you receive another notice.

If your claim is not scheduled or if your claim is designated as disputed, contingent, or unliquidated, you
must file a proof of claim or you might not be paid on your claim and you might be unable to vote on a plan.
You may file a proof of claim even if your claim is scheduled.

You may review the schedules at the bankruptcy clerk's office or online at https://pacer.uscourts.gov.

Secured creditors retain rights in their collateral regardless of whether they file a proof of claim. Filing a
proof of claim submits a creditor to the jurisdiction of the bankruptcy court, with consequences a lawyer can
explain. For example, a secured creditor who files a proof of claim may surrender important nonmonetary
rights, including the right to a jury trial.
