Payment Advices

Provide the trustee assigned to your bankruptcy case copies of all payment advices (employment pay stubs) that you received from your employer within 60 days before filing your bankruptcy petition.  Do not file payment advices with the Court.   

If payment advices are not available provide the trustee assigned to your case with a certification stating why the payment advices are not available.  The certification should include an estimate of the payments received from your employer within 60 days before filing your bankruptcy petition, and also should include any other evidence (such as bank statements showing deposits from your employer) of the payments received.  

To provide your trustee payment advices or a certification that payment advices are unavailable, follow General Order 32 and complete the Statement Re Payment Advices form.

In accordance with Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Rule 9037, remember to redact social security numbers, financial account numbers and other personal data identifiers from payment advice documents provided to your trustee.
