NextGen CM/ECF

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada will be upgrading the Case Management/Electronic Case Filing System (CM/ECF) to the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen) on November 15, 2021.

One of the benefits in NextGen is Central Sign-On (CSO), a login process that allows e-filing attorneys and non-attorneys to use one PACER login and password to access any NextGen court (district, appellate, and bankruptcy) in which they practice.

All electronic filers MUST obtain their own PACER account. Your PACER account is your login for NextGen, and therefore you MUST have your own individual PACER Account. E-filers are not able to use shared PACER accounts. Please click the Prepare for NextGen link below for more information regarding how to obtain a PACER account, upgrade your PACER Account and link your PACER Account to your current CM/ECF account. 


It is imperative all registered e-filers start preparing for CM/ECF NextGen now. Our court has put together information to help you prepare for this transition. Please review the links below to begin.
