CM/ECF is the Federal Judiciary's Case Management and Electronic Case Filing System. The system gives authorized users, such as attorneys and institutional creditors, the ability to file electronically with the court.
NextGen CM/ECF has enhanced CM/ECF in that public filers now have a single login and password for e-filing and PACER access. As an early adopter, the Alaska Bankruptcy Court was the first Bankruptcy Court to convert to NextGen CM/ECF. Eventually all Federal Courts will have the NextGen functionality.
The requirements for access to NextGen CM/ECF courts are different than for CM/ECF courts. Please read the information under the NextGen CM/ECF links for more information.
