New Transfer of Claim Fee - Effective May 1, 2013

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Effective May 1, 2013 a fee in the amount of $25.00 is due upon the filing of a claims transfer, partial claims transfer, or amended claims transfer.  This fee was approved by the Judicial Conference of the United States at its September 2012 session and is located at Item 20 of the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (Fee Schedule).

The entity filing the transfer is responsible for the payment of the fee.  The fee must be paid by credit card in CM/ECF using Pay.gov or by check if the claim transfer is not filed electronically.  An entity that handles claim transfers should ensure that individual(s) filing on their behalf are authorized to pay this fee by credit card.

In anticipation of this new fee, the court will be reviewing all limited user accounts and those with no activity within the past six (6) months will be deactivated.  Limited filers who may be affected by this review should contact the court by email at pambecf_helpdesk@pamb.uscourts.gov to have their logins reinstated.
