Procedures for filing Emergency Matter after Hours
Attorneys who wish to contact the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania before 8:30 AM, after 5:00 PM, or on weekends and federal holidays, may do so by calling (215) 597-0374, (215) 597-7272 or the toll-free number (800) 525-5726. These numbers connect with the Federal Protective Service or the Court Security Office that are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Attorneys subsequently will be placed in contact with the clerk or a deputy clerk on duty. This service is available for attorneys who must file an emergency matter that is time sensitive during non-business hours.
