E-Filing for Attorneys

Electronic submission of documents is MANDATORY for attorneys in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Alabama. 

Each applicant must obtain his or her own Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) account. To register for a PACER account, click here: For more information about this process or registering for more than one court, visit the Attorney E-File Registration page.

After a PACER account has been established, the applicant may request, through PACER, permission to file electronically in this court.  If the applicant already has a PACER account, go to, click on Manage My Account, go to the Maintenance tab, and click on Attorney Admissions/E-File Registration.

PACER will alert the court of the request.  If the requested permission is granted, the filer will receive an email from the court confirming activation of the filing privileges.  Allow one business day for the registration process to be completed.
