ATTENTION: PRO SE DEBTORS AND OTHER UNREPRESENTED PARTIES
During the course of a bankruptcy case or proceeding, bankruptcy court notices are mailed by the Bankruptcy Noticing Center (BNC) on behalf of the court. The BNC, which is operated by a private contractor, provides notice production and mailing services for the court, but THE BNC IS NOT THE COURT.
DO NOT SEND DOCUMENTS TO THE BNC
Documents related to a bankruptcy case or Proceeding should be sent directly to the court.
