The Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas has issued a new form, the Debtor Registration Form for Service of Documents by Electronic Mail, allowing people in bankruptcy ("debtors") to receive their copies of court notices via email, as opposed to receiving them via U.S. Postal Service.
This should really help some debtors get their notices, because some people have problems getting their postal mail for various reasons. Also, they will get them more quickly, instead of having to wait for the postal service to deliver it.
On the other hand, sometimes people have trouble receiving email. It will be the debtor's responsibility to make sure that they receive them. If the notices go to your spam filter instead, too bad. Debtors will not be mailed another notice.
So if you are a debtor in a bankruptcy case in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, you can fill out one of these forms, and mail or deliver it to Clerk of Court, U.S. Courthouse, 515 Rusk Street, Houston Texas 77002, and you should start receiving your documents via email instead of postal mail.
