How do I add a creditor to a case in order to file a claim?

Debtor or Debtor's Attorney: The addition, removal, or reclassification of a creditor requires that the schedules and/or mailing matrix be amended. Please see Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1009, N.D. Fla. LBR 1009-1, and the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (28 U.S.C. Sect. 1930) for more information.

Creditor: You will docket a paperless event located in the bankruptcy menu under the "Claim and Creditor Activity" category: Add Creditor(s) > Enter Individual Creditor(s) (Paperless). You will be prompted to type in the name of the creditor for the docket text and on the next screen, the name and address of the creditor for noticing and/or claims payment purposes. After you have added the creditor, you may proceed in filing a claim.
