|The court will be upgrading it's telephone system on Tuesday evening, April 30, 2013.
After 5:00 PM, Tuesday, April 30, 2013 the court will commence the upgrade to a new telephone system. This means that the court will not be able to accept any inbound calls after 5:00 PM and until the upgrade is complete. Completion is expected between 10:00 PM to Midnight. This upgrade should have no other impact upon its customers.
Coincidental to the telephone system upgrade the U. S. Bankruptcy Court will change its main telephone number, 312 435-5694. The old number will remain active, but the court will update its published number to 312 408-5000.
Thank you for your attention.

|Volunteer Attorney Panel Expanded to Include Kane County and Rockford, Illinois.
The opportunity for attorneys to provide pro bono representation in bankruptcy matters through the court's Volunteer Attorney Panel has been expanded to include matters heard in Kane County and Rockford, Illinois.
The Volunteer Attorney Panel consists of attorneys willing to represent pro se parties (mostly debtors but sometimes creditors) in bankruptcy cases. Representation is limited to adversary proceedings and contested matters – matters requiring litigation skills that pro se parties lack. No panel member is asked to file a bankruptcy case, complete schedules and similar forms, or attend a meeting of creditors.
The program is also voluntary. Panel members are never required to accept representation in a particular matter and may decline a request for representation because of a conflict of interest or for any other reason.
If you are not a current member and are interested in joining the panel, complete the short questionnaire available at http://www.ilnb.uscourts.gov/VAP/volform.cfm.
