CM/ECF Registration Information

Attorneys who currently file electronically in the federal courts:

If you are an attorney and you currently file electronically in the federal courts, complete a CM/ECF Attorney Registration Form A and mail it to the court. The court does not accept registration forms via fax or email. Upon receipt of your CM/ECF Attorney Registration Form A we will notify you of any additional training requirements or assignments. Once all training requirements have been met, you will receive a login and password to the live CM/ECF system.  All attorneys who wish to practice in this court are required to review the Local Rules and CM/ECF Administrative Guide of Policies and Procedures, Appendix A to our Local Rules, before submitting Form A.
 

Attorneys who are not electronic filers in any federal court:

If you are an attorney who has never been trained to file electronically in a federal court, you must be trained on the CM/ECF System before receiving your login and password. Training may be received in person in another court or by completing the required local Computer Based Training (CBT) modules on this website. Required modules are listed on Form A. All attorneys who wish to practice in this court are required to review the Local Rules and CM/ECF Administrative Guide of Policies and Procedures, Appendix A to our Local Rules, before submitting Form A.

Training CBT’s that are required for attorneys are also recommended for their staff, paralegals, and legal assistants.

Filing Agents

Attorneys who employ a paralegal or legal assistant to assist in filing documents in CM/ECF may register him or her as a “Filing Agent”. This type of user account enables an agent to file on behalf of the attorney with a distinct login and password with the attorney name showing in the docket text. The option to associate multiple filing agents is available for attorney, trustee and US Trustee user groups. More information on Filing Agents can be obtained in the Spring 2012 edition of the CM/ECF Newsletter.
To add a Filing Agent to your account, the Filing Agent must complete Form C and be certified to file electronically by the Court by completing the same CBT’s required for attorneys.
