NextGen Info

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.
