  • Provides you with the assigned claim number and the final claim form, which may be printed or electronically saved.
  • Does not require a login or password.

Electronic Case Files (ECF)

  • Allows you to file reaffirmation agreements, special notice requests, claim transfers, etc. using a standard web browser. 
  • Provides immediate confirmation to you, and notice to other parties in a case, that a document was filed.
  • Per Local Bankruptcy Rule 5005-4, use of ECF or ePOC is mandatory for attorneys, trustees, and any creditor who has filed more than 10 documents with the court in any calendar year.
  • Most documents must be in text-based .PDF format, requiring the user to have software to convert documents from a word processor format to portable document format (PDF).  Scanned PDFs are allowed for documents that were not created by the filer, for example trust deeds.
  • There are no additional fees to use ECF, but existing filing fees apply and must be paid electronically via credit card or ACH.  Failure to timely pay fees will result in being locked out of electronic filing.  You can bring up the payment screen at any time by clicking on Utilities - Internet Payments Due.  Credit card or ACH information may be stored in your PACER account and accessed to pay filing fees.
  • If you make an error or are unsure of how to proceed, please contact the court.  Proceeding on your own may put you at cross-purposes with the clerk's office or cause you to incur an additional filing fee.

To register for ECF:

  • If you do not have a PACER account, you must first apply for one.  Go to www.pacer.gov, click on Register, and then click on PACER.
  • Register for efiling privileges in Oregon Bankruptcy Court as follows:  Go to www.pacer.gov, click on Manage My Account, go to the Maintenance tab, and click on Non-Attorney E-File Registration.
