Order Forms

Local Rule #

Federal Rule #




E-Orders are orders that are submitted electronically to the judge for review with the exception of the Chapter 13 Plan Confirmation Orders, which are sent electronically to the Trustee for review prior to submission to the Judge. Once the judge has approved or not approved the order, it is entered onto the court docket.

The first page of any electronically uploaded order must substantially conform with the appropriate order template (CSD 1001A-C, CSD 1159A-C, or CSD 3000A-C) maintained by the Court for standard orders, orders shortening time and lodged orders. Deviations from the required format are not permitted.  Notification of defects in an order will be provided by e-mail.  Therefore is it strongly recommended that the court's E-Order templates be used.

If a paper order is scanned to a pdf, the paper must be 8-1/2 x 11 inches.  If it is larger or smaller, you will receive an error when uploading the order.

Before submitting your E-Order, the related motion/application, notice of lodgement, or stipulation must be filed on the case docket.  The resulting document number is then noted on the front page of the E-Order.
