In conjunction with the change to Local Rule 9036-1, the DeBN Request Form has been updated. The new form is .pdf fillable and has a new section to allow a debtor to decline to participate in the DeBN program. The form has also been provided to the software vendors so it can be completed during the case opening process. The form must be filed using the restricted event "Debtor's Election Re: Electronic Noticing" and not as an attachment to the petition or another document. In joint cases, a form should be completed for each debtor.
