NextGen CM/ECF

What's New for ECF Users in NextGen?

NextGen brings new functionality that will eventually allow you to maintain a single login and password for efiling and PACER access in all federal courts (bankruptcy, district and appellate) and to sign in one time to access all courts in which you have permission to file. 

The Oregon Bankruptcy Court went live on NextGen on Monday, September 28, 2015. 

Do you have your own PACER account?

You must have your own PACER account, which will be linked to your CM/ECF filing account to access NextGen CM/ECF.  Shared PACER accounts may no longer be used by CM/ECF users. 

Have you upgraded your PACER account?

If you already have your own PACER account but it was created prior to August 11, 2014, you must upgrade it. 

Does your firm need a Firm Billing Account (also known as PACER Administrative Account)?

Firms can set up a PACER Administrative Account (PAA) to manage all their user accounts and have central billing for PACER access fees.

Do you know your current CM/ECF login and password?

This is the login and password used for filing documents.  If it is stored in your browser, it may not be recoverable except by contacting the Court during regular business hours. 

You must link your upgraded PACER account to your CM/ECF Account. 

You will need both your upgraded PACER login and password, and your ECF login and password, for this process.  If you have not obtained your own PACER account, or if you have your own PACER account but you haven't upgraded it, see above.
