American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com 1 CSD 1007 ­ Creditor Matrix Instructions [01/15/14] WhatisaCreditorMatrix? When you file a voluntary petition under any bankruptcy chapter, you the debtor (or your attorney, if you use one) must prepare and submit to the Court a mailing list called the creditor matrix, which is a list of creditors to whom you owe money. This mailing list contains all of your creditors' and/or equity security holders' name(s) and addresses. You can create a creditor matrix using a computer and wordprocessing software. Then you can submit the creditor matrix to the Court as a .txt file on electronic media (such as a CD, DVD, or flash/thumb drive). Note If you do not have a computer and/or wordprocessing software to create your creditor matrix, you can use the computers in the Court's Intake (Front Counter) area (Jacob Weinberger United States Courthouse, 325 West F Street, San Diego, CA 92101). To see a sample creditor matrix, see Appendix A, which can be found at the end of this document. WhenMustYouSubmitaCreditorMatrix? In addition to the voluntary petition and various schedules required by the Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 1007, a creditor matrix mailing list also may be required. A creditor matrix is required if one of the following conditions occurs: a. b. c. A new petition is filed. A case is converted. A Balance of Schedules or Amendment to Schedule of Debts and/or Schedule of Equity Security Holders to a case is filed, which adds, deletes, or changes creditor address information on the debtor's Schedule of Debts and/or Schedule of Equity Security Holders. Note The creditor matrix is a document separate from the amended schedules and may not be used to substitute for any portion of the schedules. The creditor matrix must be submitted with the Amendment or Balance of Schedules. FilingaCreditorMatrixwithConvertedCases a. b. When converting a Chapter 13 case to another chapter, you must list all creditors on the creditor matrix when the conversion is filed. For Chapter 7, 11, or 12 cases converted to another chapter, you need list only postpetition creditors on the creditor matrix. The creditor matrix must be filed with the postpetition Schedule of Debts and/or Schedule of Equity Security Holders. If there are no postpetition creditors, a declaration stating this is required.

When you submit an electronic version of the creditor matrix, the Court's case administrator electronically adds the creditor matrix to the bankruptcy case file. The creditor matrix information then is used by the Bankruptcy Noticing Center (BNC) to send mailed notices of case activity to the creditors and/or equity security holders. WhoCreatesaCreditorMatrix? You the debtor (or other such person as the Court may order) are responsible for creating the creditor matrix. If you are a partnership or corporation, you must be represented by an attorney, who then creates your creditor matrix. If you use an attorney, your attorney must prepare a creditor matrix in accordance with the procedures found in the CM/ECF Procedural and Resource Manual, which is prepared and written specifically for attorneys. This manual is available on the Court's Web site. Visit www.casb.uscourts.gov; click on CM/ECF, then Resources.
