North Carolina Eastern Bankruptcy

Welcome to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina

Eastern District of North Carolina - Document Filing System

The Eastern District of North Carolina is heavily involved in the national effort to redesign the CM/ECF System. As a CM/ECF filer, your input is vital to this process. If you would like to participate, please provide a high level description of improvements that you would like to see in the existing system. This can include both changes to existing processes and additional features. Thank you for your interest.

Request for Records On December 1, 2003, Congress enacted the Privacy Act of 2003 which protects the display, sale or purchase of social security numbers and/or any personal identifying information that could lead to fraud or identity theft. To obtain bankruptcy records for a case filed prior to December 1, 2003, and that has been closed for more than 1 year you may do either of the following:

Contact the attorney who represented you in the bankruptcy proceeding. The attorney is required by law pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 5005-4(7) to retain any documents that require original signatures for four years after the closing of the case. Please note that the attorney may charge a fee.

Contact the Clerk's office in writing to request a copy of your records. If you are unsure what documents you need and how many pages there are, you may contact the case administrator assigned your case number by clicking on the following link: Case Administrator Assignments. There is a $26.00 record search fee plus $.50 per page copy charge.

The fees may be submitted by certified funds or money order to:
