The Court upgraded to NextGen on November 23, 2020.
NextGen centralizes access credentials for multiple courts.
Central Sign-On allows electronic filers to maintain one account across all NextGen courts (appellate, bankruptcy, and district). Attorneys are now able to use their PACER credentials to access all NextGen courts where they have permission to file.
All electronic filers must have an individual, upgraded PACER account.
All users who registered for electronic filing prior to November 23, 2020 must link an individual, upgraded PACER account to their existing CM/ECF account.
Note: Journalists who previously registered for case tracking accounts must also link a PACER account to their CM/ECF account.
Attorneys can manage their fee exemption status within a single account.
Attorneys with a fee exemption only need one PACER account for filing and viewing in NextGen. Exempt users should use the toggle feature within NextGen to alternate between exempt and not exempt status.
Firms can consolidate billing for multiple individual accounts.
Pacer Administrative Accounts help allow multiple individual accounts to be centrally billed for PACER access fees. To register for a PACER Administrative Account, please visit https://pacer.uscourts.gov/register-account/group-billing.
