Attorney Filers for CM/ECF
Attorneys filing federal court records electronically or being admitted to practice at a court must first register for a PACER account. This will give attorneys access to view case information and documents. Courts are using one of two versions of CM/ECF – NextGen or CurrentGen.
- NextGen CM/ECF: Register through this site for a PACER account if the court you want to file in uses NextGen CM/ECF. First time users will be prompted to register for a PACER account and then select to apply for attorney admissions or electronic filing registration available for the selected court.
- CurrentGen CM/ECF: First you need to register for a PACER account. Then, register directly with each district and/or bankruptcy court who uses CurrentGen CM/ECF.
Visit the main PACER website (pacer.uscourts.gov) for more information on attorney filers registering for an account.
