The Voice Case Information System (VCIS)  has been upgraded with a new system called Multi Court Voice Case Information System (McVCIS).  McVCIS allows a caller to access basic case information from any touch-tone telephone at any time by dialing 866-222-8029. There is no fee charged with this service. The information that can be obtained includes the debtor’s name, case number, date case was filed, type of case, trustee, debtor's attorney, debtor’s attorney’s phone number, discharge date, closing date, creditors’ meeting date and whether assets appear to be available for distribution.

Photocopies

Photocopies in both active and closed cases filed on or after August 15, 2002 are available from the Clerk's Office. Requests for photocopies of case or adversary proceeding documents can be made in writing, in person or by phone. If the requestor provides a clear document reference (i.e., document number or date document entered where very few documents entered on such date) and the document is available within the Court premises, the Clerk's Office will provide the copies free of any additional search charge; however,  any applicable copy charges will still apply. Please refer to the Fee Schedule for more information.

For cases filed before August 15, 2002, photocopies are available from the Clerk's Office directly if the case is still active. For copies in closed cases filed prior to August 15, 2002, refer to the Closed Case Information Page.
