Now Available at RI Bankruptcy Court: Voice Case Information System Adds Spanish Response

Friday, June 13, 2014

An interactive voice response system for bankruptcy case information now provides case information to callers in Spanish.
Developed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts, the Multi-Court Voice Case Information System (McVCIS) is used by 93 of the nation’s 94 bankruptcy courts.
Last year, more than 2 million callers dialed McVCIS to listen to bankruptcy case information that includes debtors’ names, method of case disposition, bankruptcy chapter, reported assets, case status, discharge date and more. “McVCIS is an important tool for bankruptcy courts,” said Bankruptcy Judge Margaret Mahoney of the Southern District of Alabama. “Our court has several hundred Chapter 13 confirmations per week. To be able to let debtors and creditors obtain basic case information over the telephone with this system allows us to be responsive to the public while saving our clerk’s office many hours.”

The McVCIS telephone number is:  1-866-222-8029
