How to Register for CM/ECF

If you would like to file electronically and view case records you will need both a PACER account and an ECF account. Please note registering for ECF is different than registering to view PACER generally.  The CM/ECF FAQ provides an excellent overview of the registration process and other information you will need.

Attorneys, parties, and interested parties must register for an ECF Account to file electronically. To register, please see our Step By Step Guide. Please note registering for ECF is different than registering to view PACER generally. Having a general PACER account will not allow you to file electronically. You must take this extra step. Conversely, having an ECF account will not allow you to view and print case records. Therefore, if you would like to file electronically and view case records you will need both a general PACER account and an ECF account. As of May 15, 2017, the court converted to the NextGen ECF operating system. NextGen is accessible via the PACER site. Please see the NextGen information section for important details on linking your PACER account to your ECF account.
