NextGen: What it Means to You

The Bankruptcy Court will be upgrading its Case Management/Electronic Case Filing System (CM/ECF) to the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen). This upgrade provides users with several new benefits. One of these benefits is Central Sign-On, a login process which allows e-filing attorneys to use one PACER login and password to access any NextGen court (district, appellate and bankruptcy) in which they practice.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court will convert to NextGen CM/ECF on March 1, 2021.

Attorneys MUST obtain their own PACER account and upgrade it. For steps to do this, see the Important Information for Attorneys page by clicking here.

NOTE: Shared PACER accounts cannot be used by CM/ECF filers once the court has upgraded to NextGen.
