The Court has upgraded its CM/ECF system to NextGen. To request e-filing access you must (1) complete and mail the Limited/Creditor User Login/Password Application form and (2) request e-filing privileges through PACER at pacer.uscourts.gov. If you currently have a PACER account login to Manage My Account, click on Maintenance then click on Non-Attorney E-File Registration and follow the prompts. If you do not have an individual, upgraded PACER account, see the information on our NextGen page.
Notwithstanding the amendment to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 1007(b)(7), which becomes effective December 1, 2013, personal financial management course providers will not be granted electronic access to CM/ECF to file debtor education financial management certificates as the amendment to the rule does not require the court to grant electronic access. These certificates can continue to be filed electronically by the attorney for the debtor or in paper format by a pro se debtor or the personal financial management course provider.
