Your PACER Account is now your login; therefore, you MUST have your own individual PACER Account. E-filing attorneys will not be able to use shared PACER accounts.
To access NextGen, please follow steps 1 through 3 below.
Step 1: Obtain your own individual PACER account if you do not already have one. To register for a new PACER account, click here: https://pacer.psc.uscourts.gov/pscof/regWizard.jsf
Step 2: If you have your own individual PACER account and it was created prior to August 11, 2014 (also known as a Legacy account), you must upgrade your PACER account before you can electronically file in a NextGen court. To check if you already have an upgraded account, go to Manage My Account and enter your PACER credentials.
Step 3: Note your current CM/ECF login and password. This is the login and password you are currently using. If you do not know your current login and password, please contact the Clerk’s Office.
Step 4: Link your upgraded PACER account with you CM/ECF account. This step can only be performed on or after the Go Live Date of May 4, 2020. Follow the instruction for Linking your CM/ECF and PACER account.
If you need help upgrading your PACER account, please contact PACER support at 1-800-676-6856 or the clerk’s office at 251-441-5391 for assistance.
