The North Carolina Western Bankruptcy Court will go live on the Next-Generation of
CM/ECF (NextGen CM/ECF) on Monday, October 21, 2019.
CM/ECF will not be available beginning Thursday, Oct 17 at 5:00 p.m. through Monday, Oct. 21 at noon.
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.
NextGen Preparation/PACER Assistance
CM/ECF users will need to complete preparatory steps in PACER prior to October 21, and an additional step after that date to enable electronic filing in the NextGen CM/ECF system. To assist users with CM/ECF NextGen Preparation, Court staff will be available to provide PACER assistance with upgrading or creating new accounts on certain hearing dates.
