RULE 2002-3


  1. An entity and a notice provider may agree that when the notice provider is directed by the Court to give notice to that entity, the notice provider shall give the notice to the entity in a certain manner prescribed in writing by the entity,  and at the address or addresses the entity supplies in writing to the notice provider. That address is conclusively presumed to be a proper address for the notice. The notice provider’s failure to use the supplied address does not invalidate any notice that is otherwise effective under applicable law.
  2. The filing of a notice of preferred address pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 342(f) by the creditor directly with the agency or agencies that provide noticing services for the Bankruptcy Court will constitute the filing of such notice with the Court.
  3. Registration with the National Creditor Registration Service must be accomplished through the Bankruptcy Noticing Center, the agency that provides noticing services for the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Florida, available online
  4. A local form for use by creditors for filing the notice of preferred address under 11 U.S.C. § 342(e) is available online.
