NextGen CM/ECF E-File Conversion Confirmation
You need to link your upgraded PACER account to your existing filer account. Follow the steps listed below:

  1. If you already have a PACER account, it must be upgraded (have more than six characters in the login name) before you can link it to an existing filing account. If you need to upgrade your PACER account, click this link and a new window will appear. Log in and complete the PACER upgrade. Then proceed to step 3.

  2. If you do not have a PACER account, register for an upgraded PACER account by clicking this link. A new window will appear where you can complete the registration. Then proceed to step 3.

  3. Link your upgraded PACER account to your existing CM/ECF filer account. When you click this link, a new PACER login window will appear. Follow the steps below:

    • Enter the PACER credentials you created above, and you will be redirected to the next generation (NextGen) Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system.

      a. For appellate users: click Link my filer account to my PACER account and proceed to step 3c.

      b. For district/bankruptcy users: Select Utilities>NextGen Release 1.1 Menu Items>Link my filer account to my PACER account and proceed to step 3c.

      c. Enter your old e-file CM/ECF login and password to link your accounts.

  4. Your upgraded PACER account will be linked to your CM/ECF e-filing account. From this point forward, use your upgraded PACER credentials to log in to NextGen CM/ECF for this court.

  5. For district/bankruptcy users: If you have more than one CM/ECF e-filing account in the court, you may link additional accounts by following steps 3b and 3c for the additional accounts.

  6. Updates to your account should be made at the PACER Service Center using Manage My Account. These updates will be sent to the court for processing.

NOTE: This process must be repeated for each court in which you have an existing e-filing account, when the court upgrades to NextGen CM/ECF.
