CM/ECF | Bankruptcy Court Middle Florida


The Court’s CM/ECF system sends emails regarding case activity to primary and any additional email addresses that registered attorney users have entered in their CM/ECF user accounts. Often the Court receives returned or “bounced-back” emails primarily as a result of email addresses being entered incorrectly or email accounts being full or closed.

Please be advised that the Court’s Local Rule 1001-2(h) states “Registration as an Electronic User constitutes: (1) waiver of the right to receive notice by first-class mail and consent to receive notice electronically; and (2) waiver of the right to service by personal service or first-class mail and consent to electronic service, except with regard to summons and complaint under Fed. R. Bankr. P. 7004…”

Further, the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida implemented the Reduced Paper Module (RPM) which means that in most cases where an electronic filer is a party, only electronic notice will be sent. The court no longer sends redundant paper notices and orders with a few exceptions.

It is your responsibility to properly maintain your CM/ECF user account with up-to-date email addresses in order to receive all electronic notices timely. Additionally it is your responsibility to monitor case activity.

To update email addresses, log into CM/ECF, select Utilities and Maintain Your ECF Account and then select “email”. You may update and add email addresses but may not delete your primary email address. For additional information on how to update your email address click here. Changes to your name, firm, or address information cannot be made through Maintain Your ECF Account under Utilities. You must contact the Court’s Help Desk for instruction and assistance to make these changes.
