Amended Administrative Order FLMB-2015-4

The Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida issued Amended Administrative Order FLMB-2015-4 effective June 1, 2015. In addition to the existing requirement that every unrepresented party, including debtors wishing to file a voluntary bankruptcy petition and petitioning creditors wishing to file an involuntary petition, provide acceptable photo identification those filers must include the required signatures on the petition at the time of filing. Additionally any individual filing a petition on behalf of an unrepresented party also must provide acceptable photo identification at the time of filing. Failure to supply acceptable photo identification or the required signatures will result in an immediate hearing before the Court to determine whether the Clerk should accept the papers.
