The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of West Virginia utilizes a public information system accessible via telephone - Voice Case Information System (McVCIS). The system offers search capabilities using name, case number, social security number or tax identification number.


How it Works?

McVCIS uses a devise called a voice synthesizer, which generates words electronically. The voice-quality is not perfect, but gets easier to understand with use because it always reads the information in the same order.

How Do I Use It?

To access MCVCIS simply dial 866-222-8029. McVCIS will instruct you how to use your telephone to search for cases. VCIS allows you to search for 5 debtors per call; however, it will provide information about all cases involving each debtor.

To access the Southern District of West Virginia, say "West Virginia Southern" at the prompt or say "West Virginia" then press 41.

  • Name of debtor(s) or party
