E-Filing User Manual

Getting Started

This manual provides instructions on how to use the Electronic Filing System to file documents with the U.S. Bankruptcy Northern District of California, or to view and retrieve docket sheets and documents for all cases assigned to this system.  It assumes a working knowledge of  Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Adobe Acrobat.  Please refer to  Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Adobe Acrobat instruction manuals for specific questions regarding those applications.

Users can access ECF by navigating to: http://canb.uscourts.gov or https://ecf.canb.uscourts.gov

Step 1 The Welcome Screen is displayed.

Click [hyperlink] Northern District of California -Document Filing System

Step 2 Logins and Passwords

Some registered users (attorneys, trustees and certain users) will use two sets of logins and passwords; one for CM/ECF filing and the other for Public Access to Electronic Records (PACER) access for queries and reports. Registered users will see a login screen. (Note: The Login and Password fields are case sensitive.) Registered users will initially enter their ECF login and password which has been issued by the court on this screen. This login and password allows electronic filing of documents, not access to reports or queries.  The client code field is optional and is used for PACER users to associate this activity to specific customers. If an error is made before submitting the screen, clicking on the [Clear] button will delete the data and allow you to reenter information

Note: The registered user's login and password is the electronic equivalent of their signature. All users are personally responsible for activity with their logins.

If you forget your password, please use the forgotten password link on the login page or send an e-mail to the helpdesk at helpdesk@canb.uscourts.gov requesting a password change.

Parties

Consistently adding names and addresses with the same formats and abbreviations aid in the search for and retrieval of these records, which prevents duplicate entries.  To avoid duplicate entries, it is important to use the following standards when adding names to the CM/ECF database.

 How to Search for a Party

Before adding a party, it is recommended that one search the database for the filer to eliminate duplicate records in the system.  One can search by Social Security Number, Tax Identification Number, Last Name or Business Name.

  • Enter the debtor's last name and first name and click [Search].  For business filings enter the entire name in the Last/Business name field.

Note:  DO NOT TYPE IN ALL UPPERCASE CHARACTERS, UNLESS THE NAME OF THE PARTY SHOULD BE IN UPPER CASE.

Names of Individuals

Capitalize the first letter of the first, middle and last names only.  Enter the last name in the last name field, the first name in the first name field, and the middle name in the middle name field.  (If only a middle initial is provided, enter it with a capital letter followed by a period.)

Type the generation, if there is one, in the generation field (e.g. Jr., Sr., III).

  • Titles (e.g. M.D., PhD.) Use the Party text field only.  Do not include titles in the generation or last name field.

Company and organization names

  • Type company or organization names in the last name field.  Leave the first name, middle name, and generation fields blank.

Company names with initials should be added with no spaces between the first and second initials.  Example: A.B. Truck Lines

  • Company names using initials such as GMAC, PG & E should be spelled out with the exception of the name that is only part of the name not the whole name.

          Example:  General Motors Acceptance Corp.

          Example:  Pacific Gas and Electric Co.

          Example: RDI Financial Inc.

"The" as the first word in a name.  Type it in before the name.

  • Ampersands (&):  Do not use the ampersand symbol in names or addresses.  Type the word  "and" instead of the ampersand.

Example:  A and A Seed Co.

  • Associates, Association, Company, Corporation, and Incorporated:  Abbreviate as "Assoc." "Assn.", "Co.", "Corp." and  "Inc."

"of" and "the":  Use all lower case letters when in the middle of a name.

  • LLC, LLP, LP, N.A., FSB, Esq:  Do not add as part of the name.

Use the Party Text field only.

  • Aka, faka, dba, fdba:  Do not add as part of the name, add them in the alias field.

  • State of Agencies:  Type the two letter state abbreviations followed by the department name on the same line.  Remember to indicate the state's name even if it is not part of the agency title.

Example:  CA Franchise Tax Board

  • County agencies: Type the county name followed by department name.

Example:  San Francisco County Tax Collector, Santa Cruz County Assessor

  • If county or city is the name of the party, type the "County of" or "City of" then followed by the name.

Example: County of  Marin, City of San Jose

  • Government agencies are to be added in the following manner:

Example:  U.S. Dept. of [agency]

Example:  U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs

 

There are a few exceptions to this rule such as:  

Example:  USDA Rural Development [fdba Farmers Home Administration; fdba Rural Economic and Community Development Services]

Example:  Internal Revenue Service

  • Since a Trust or Estate is a legal entity, they should be added as they are filed, with the exception of  "The" in the beginning.

Example: "The Estate of John Doe"  would be entered in the last name field as: "Estate of John Doe" would be entered in the last name field as: "Trust of Jane Doe"

  • Calif. Auto Dealers, Inc. is spelled out

Example:  California Auto Dealers, Inc.

  • A doctor, dentists, etc., should be added [if an individual] with the first name in the first name in the first name field, last name in the last name field. MD or DDS etc.. should be added in the Party Text field.

  • When adding a party with a "partnership" or "a California Corporation" in the name the party text field should be used.

Example:  Hancock Insurance Company, a California Corporation would be entered:

Last/Business Name Field: Hancock Insurance Company

Party Text:  an California Corporation
