Administrative Manual
Introduction and Message from the Clerk


It is our hope that the following Administrative Manual will serve your needs in knowing how to file papers, documents and pleadings. In 2008, the Local Rules Committee agreed that much of the content of our Local Rules was administrative in nature and that to separate the actual rules from the administrative guidance would be helpful. For one, it would allow the Clerk's Office to make changes and updates more readily than during the normal cycle for revision of Local Rules. It also becomes a "text" of sorts for practicing attorneys and their assistants. We encourage you and your staff to use the Administrative Manual to guide you in your practice and welcome any ideas you might have for improving its content.

Elizabeth H. Parks
Clerk of the United States Bankruptcy Court
Western District of Kentucky
