Creditor Filing

The North Carolina Western Bankruptcy Court went live on the Next-Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen CM/ECF) on Monday, October 21, 2019.

The Federal Judiciary has developed a Next Generation (NextGen) Case Management / Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system that will allow you to use the same account for both PACER and electronic filing access. This single login and password will allow users to access all federal courts (bankruptcy, district, and appellate) in which a user has permission to file. 

The WDNC Bankruptcy Court requires an Attorney ECF login or an ECF Limited Login/Password to file the items listed below with the exception of the Proof of Claim.

Effective June 17, 2019 all creditor filings, with the exception of Proof of Claims,  will require a Limited Login to the CM/ECF system.  


IMPORTANT NOTICE OF REDACTION RESPONSIBILITY: All filers must redact: Social Security or taxpayer-identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; and financial account numbers, in compliance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9037. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments.
