CM/ECF Accounts and Online Training

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Indiana upgraded its Case Management/Electronic Case Filing system (CM/ECF) to the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen) on June 3, 2019.  This upgrade allows electronic filers to use one login and password for e-filing in any NextGen court in which they practice.  To become an electronic filer, please review the instructions below. 

Register for a CM/ECF Account

  • Obtain your own Individual PACER account, if you haven’t already done so.
  • Once you have an upgraded, Individual PACER account, log in to PACER and click  Manage My Account.
    • If you are filing as an attorney, select the Attorney Admissions/E-File Registration.
    • If you are not filing as an attorney, select the Non-Attorney E-File Registration option for a non-attorney limited use account.  Please note, this includes creditors, financial management providers, filing agents, court reporters, and transcribers.
  • When your request is complete, the PACER Service Center will send it to the court for verification and processing.
  • Once the court has processed your request, you will receive an email notification.
  • For further information please visit PACER’s frequently asked questions page here:

Updating your CM/ECF Account

The information you update through Manage My Account in PACER is automatically sent electronically to each court in which you are admitted or registered for CM/ECF access.

Online Training

The court no longer requires CM/ECF users complete an online training course prior to receiving access. If you need additional guidance regarding ECF, please look at the resources provided here:
